I was fortunate to get a chance to know Barry and Vicky during my brief time in Lindenhurst at the gym. Although our time was short I considered Barry a friend. I enjoyed our conversations about work and life in general. He was a smart man that I respected not only for his work ethic but his soft demeanor. No matter how hard my day was I knew that there would be a good chance I would see the Adlers as I left my office for the day. Barry would present me with that signature smile while working out on his exercise bike. We would talk shop, compare recipes, complain about bosses and make fun of the world. It always seemed to ground me before I headed home. I always loved the fact that the Akdlers won the big prize (Green Egg) at the member party. Barry used to tease me every time they used it to grill out.
I am very sorry for your loss Vicky. My prayers go out to you and your family during this time. I’ll be thinking about you.
