Barry Brookens (1968)

Gary was a friend of mine. We got to know each other in the 4th grade. Through school we both liked art and had a lot of fun learning how to draw together.  In elementary school we spent a lot of time drawing hot rods. We both always loved cars. Through John Muir and Pacific High we had art classes together.  Gary was very talented. After high school we became the best of friends and started Art classes at Chabot College together, and effortlessly knocked out A's on every project. We had a great time every day with all of the people around the Bay Area that we both knew, and we knew a lot of people. We had lots of laughs and adventures, as well as many introspective conversation about life. Great times. Peddle to the Metal back then, to say the least. I miss the camaraderie. I miss Gary. I wish he were here for this part of the journey. Barry Brookens.  I dedicate this song to Gary, one of our favorites.
