ErinsisleTo Brenda and all the Barry Family,
I would like to extend sincere sympathy and heartfelt prayers to you all on behalf of the Mullin family. Words cannot explain the terrible loss you are experiencing but the wonderful memories that she has given you will be the gifts that will help you to struggle on. May God hold her in the palm of his hand safely until you all met again,
Austin, Gail, Erin and the boys

Jay-JayI don't understand.... I was in Harbour Island last week to orginize a few weddings and saw kim a few times. I asked her what she was doing home in November and she said "I just had to come home." We made plans for the Xmas and had a long conversation about law school. When i got the phone call in Canada on sunday i was in shock. I still remember the purfume she was wearing at the Landing last sunday when i hugged her good bye after brunch. I still remember her on the beach last saturday with her dad, tina, gavin and his parents. She was so wondeful and intellegent. She was always so happy. On the behalf of myself and the Percentie Family we extend our deepest regreats to Ms. Brenda and the Barry Family. May her soul rest in peace.

Fig Tree News TeamOur hearts go out to mother Brenda Barry of The Landing, sisters Tracy and Tina and a host of family and friends:

Kim Barry, 35, passed away Saturday at St. Vincent's Medical Center in Manhattan, where her distraught family gathered after flying to the city from the Bahamas.

"She was a wonderful person to be with and universally respected," said Richard Revesz, dean of New York University's Law School. "When she enters a room, it becomes a warmer, more cheery place."

"She was a totally brilliant young woman and an amazing person," said a friend who gave his name only as Derek. "I'm completely traumatized."

After receiving her bachelor's and master's degrees from Georgetown, Barry graduated magna cum laude from NYU Law in 1998, school spokesman John Beckman said. She then spent some time in the private sector and clerked at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco before returning to NYU to work on electoral issues, including the right of felons to vote in Florida.

A year ago, she was the first person awarded the Furman Fellowship, which provides promising law school graduates funding and an office to do research. Barry also worked at Human Rights First, an advocacy group, and became known around campus as a respected source of advice for struggling students.

"[She is] a cherished member of our community," Revesz said. "Like everyone here at the school, I am stunned by the suddenness, tragedy and unfairness of this."
