Tribute to a Great Explorer

Photo of Barry and his dog Linsday: courtsey of his blog : Anexplorer's View of Life
I was saddened to learn about the death of a fellow blogger and tweeter Barry Fraser earlier this week.

Barry was the owner and author of the blog : Anexplorer's View of Life.

I first came to "know" Barry in January 2009 when his blog became a "Blog of Note."
I looked forward to reading his daily blog entries, especially about his dog Lindsay.

Barry was a talented writer. His blog had hundreds of followers. It was not uncommon for one of his blog entries t0 have fifty to one hundred comments.

Barry was diagnosed with cancer in early 2009. His subsequent blog entries demonstrated his courage and optimism in treating the cancer.

I never met Barry in person nor ever heard his voice. I did have the opportunity to communicate with him through Twitter. I concluded that Barry was a kind and loving man who was loved and respected by his family, friends. and hundreds of his followers.

I encourage you all to go to his blog and read his many entries to honor his memory. Click here.

Rest in Peace Barry. I know you are truly missed.
