    Dollie, Praying for you and your family. I didn’t know your husband but I remember you two from Temple Baptist Church way back in the late sixties early seventies. My grandmother Barbrey always thought highly of both of you. She spoke quite frequently of what a role model you were. May God bless you through these times. – Lynn Barbrey Day (Coy Barbrey’s granddaughter)

    Oh, Ervin! My heart is broken! I looked for your number but HE had it in his address book (which I have yet to find.) He hated computers and did not want numbers in his phone! You were so special to him and me! The times we spent together were some of our best memories. I will call you when I can! Just remember how much you meant to him and me!

    Dollie –
    So sorry to learn of HE’s passing. After several unsuccessful attempts to reach him by phone, my latest effort got me a “not a working number “ message and I just found his obituary.
    Got to know HE back in the ‘70s when he worked for Cox trailers. With his professional, ethical, and honest working relationship it was a pleasure doing business with HE. Certainly cannot say that about all the people in the marine industry.
    We bumped into each other through the years at various industry meetings and it was always good to see each other. For the past several years we have talked a couple of times per year.
    As a fellow brother in Christ I know he’s in a good place!
    Dollie – hope you have recovered from knee surgery. I miss HE and know that you do.
    God Bless
