Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family of Vincent Barnauskas - I always remember him being called Barney ??. We will thinking of you during your time of loss. My memories of your dad from camping at Shupac lake or stopping by for a visit and him sharing his homemade dandelion wine. Always a great guy I had the utmost respect for.
