Barry Marshall: Another Friend Gone to Glory
Thu., Mar. 27. 2014 9:20am EDT

We recently received this bittersweet email:

I appreciate and love you guys. It is with a heavy heart that I tell you about the passing of my brother Barry Marshall. I know that you meet thousands of people and may not remember. He was instrumental in bringing you to French Lick IN and Paoli IN.

He loved you guys and your music. I met "the band" when you came to my mom's trailer for some of Barry's famous chili and to watch the Steelers. He went to be with Jesus last Friday after open heart-surgery.

Mom went to be with the Lord in 2011. Dad followed last August. I am so thankful that he didn't have to live out his life unable to get around. Prayers for you and the group until we meet at His feet.

Terry Duncan
Powell OH
Of course, we remember Barry. We watch the 2006 AFC Championship Game (Steelers vs. Broncos) with him before that concert in French Lick. He also sent us the book Blue Like Jazz, which we enjoyed very much. We were very sorry to hear of his passing.

After we received this email, we corresponded with Terry, and as we thought about her brother's passing and the loss of her mother and father, we felt led to share some of the lyrics from our song "Spead the Way (Galilee Beach Boys)":
And when my time's complete
You'll hold a family reunion
And if my dreams come true
I'll get to come with You real soon then

Thanks, Father God, that I live and breathe
I want You to know that I believe in Your Son
But livin' with dyin' is hard for me
So help me, God
Ah, it's taking so long

Jimmy and me, Lord, me and my bro
You wanted apostles to walk the road and spread the Way
Galilee Beach Boys, that's me and my bro
We counted the cost and we rocked the boat and left the lake
Why'd You take him away?

You won't forsake me, you won't forsake me
After that, Terry responded with the following:
That was fantastic. I read the words first, which, of course, touched my heart. But when I heard the song I felt joy about Barry and his journey. He and I were in Easter dramas at our church and in my mind, once again, I saw him in costume, but this time I saw him walking the shores of Galilee with a smile.

If I may, I would like to use this at his celebration of life which will happen sometime in the next few weeks. I hope to keep better track of where the band will be. I'd love for my 10-year-old grandson to hear you live. Moving here to Ohio, I fell out of touch with you, but just like the Lord, your messages kept coming on my email. Well, maybe not just like the Lord, but your emails kept me in touch.

Barry was a complex man, but always looking for ways to spread the gospel. I wish you could have heard him teach and/or sing. How I miss him.

I hope you never run out of songs. I praise the Lord for all your efforts to spread the Word. Praying for you. Looking forward to His return.

Love in Christ
Terry
Please pray for Terry. We are honored to have found favor with her and her brother. We look forward to seeing Terry again at a future concert and Barry again when we get to Heaven.
