    To the Clausen family and Whitney, I never had the opportunity to meet Barry in person but he’s was one of the sweetest men I’ve ever had the pleasure of talking to. He always had a smile on his face and always knew how to make me laugh. He will forever have a place in my heart. My deepest condolences and prayers are with you all. Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

    My deepest sympathy to you all. I have enjoyed knowing Barry (and the entire Clausen family) for most of my life. He had a great sense of humor and a great, friendly personality. I got to know him during school back in Belview, mostly in the high school band, but as it was a very small school, also in the hallways and various other school functions. Take comfort in knowing that Barry is at peace. Take care and I hope to see all of you soon.
