Condolence: Dear Karin and Family,
Barry was a great man of God and mentor to me. I was a young man when we connected through the AIM program. For 5 consecutive summers (1989-1993) we took teams to minister on the streets of Germany. His leadership and friendship were very influential on my life and ministry. Some of what I am today is because of his investment in my life. I will never forget him. It was an honor to sit with him for hours in coffee shops (what he called "staff meetings")and hear about you, Karin, his high school sweetheart. He spoke frequently about every one of his children. I knew all of your names, because he spoke of you so often. He loved every one of you very deeply. I think it was 1991 when Susie joined our ministry team in East Berlin. Karin it was my honor to meet you face to face when you came to minister with Barry in Maryland. I can only imagine how much every grandchild meant to him. I wish I could fly to Missouri to pay honor to Barry, he deserves great honor in my book. I will always remember him and the positive impact he has made on my life. I send this note with my prayer for you, Karin, Susie, Barry, John, Daniel, Rachel, your spouses and your children. I encourage you to continue the legacy of service to God with no limits. I'm wondering how many missionaries are among those grandchildren. - With deepest love and remembrance, Tim Baldwin, Pastor of Catonsville Assembly of God, Baltimore, MD.
