Barry Nugent

A precious friend went home to be with Jesus today. Barry lived his life with love, compassion, honor, kindness, joy, hope and peace. He was a true gentle man. I was honored to know and love Barry's heart. He was an amazing husband, father and friend.

Many of you know of the trips that my girl friends and I made up to the Boston area to visit Barry's wife Clare. Barry was always sweet to take care of the children while we played tourists with Clare. Barry would give up his bed and camp out downstairs in the basement with Sam and Joseph while his home was overtaken by 5 women.

Please keep this precious family in your prayers. Sam and Joseph are little men who have been loved and taught well by their Daddy and know he is waiting for them in heaven, but they sure are going to miss him. I know Clare would also covet your prayers with her missing the love of her life. God is good and holds them in their hands and has been right there with them and will be...for that we are thankful.

Godspeed Barry, go and  claim your crown...we will see you soon.
