Barbara - Uncle Barry was a special person and I will always cherish our many wonderful conversations covering so many topics, especially family. He loved you dearly! I will never forget him, and one thing in particular - his natural positivity and enthusiasm for life really went off the chart whenever he talked about Venice, Italy - he would light up and ax poetic and on his recommendation we went last year! Sending much love to you, Mark, Cecilia, Antonela and Carlos Skolnick

Our dear friend Barry Skolnick will be terribly missed. We will miss his humor, his friendship, going to the theater together, working at Asolo together and spending New Years Eve with him. But most of all we will miss how he loved Barbara and kids and how he valued every person he was friends with
Sandy and Neil Clark
