I got a call around 8:30 this morning from Mr. Barry Holmes a dear friend to many of us, an RFS Member, and C.O. USBR MD with me at NASA, he called to let me know his Sister passed away last night. I do not have any in depth details at this time but Barry or I one will post arrangements and details as soon as they come down the wire, so for now just keep the Holmes Family in your thoughts and prayers in this time of great loss..

I would like to echo that Barry and Bonnie, I am so sorry for your loss.

Well I have a small update for now, I received a TXT response from Barry after Church this morning I had sent him one last night just to check on him and to see if there was anything I could do to help. Barry said that they are doing as well as to be expected and there are no details set at this time and he will send them as soon as there are any to report. I think the Medical Personnel is checking things over but no foul play or anything like that but with that and the weekend we should know by tonight or in the morning, I will give yall what I got 24/7 just keep an eye out here on RFS for details as they come available. Barry said to tell everyone the Family especially him Thanks yall for the outpouring of support, thoughts and Prayers in this time of sorrow and loss.. More info as it becomes available... "T"


I have spoken to Members of the NASA Board of Directors and we will be sending a Potted Plant or Flowers on Monday, any special request or cool ideas please PM me with those, Anedra and I depending on my work schedule will be going to the Visitation so if any one wants to send a card or anything special there again just PM or call me before noon tomorrow and we will be glad to take it to Barry and his Family.. "T"

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family, Barry.
All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.
Thomas Jefferson

A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.
Thomas Jefferson
