MSHills30 years ago - on our third trip to the Island we rented the "Barton House" with some friends - first time to rent and the beginning of a love affair with Harbour Island. I can appreciate the 50 years of love on the Island that the Barton family enjoyed. I am sure that heaven will feel an awful lot like Briland to him.

Fig Tree News TeamAlfred P. Barton passed away in his home in Water Mill, NY, on February 14, 2006. Al and his wife Patsy first visited Harbour Island in the early 1950's, shortly after the opening of Pink Sands, and have celebrated the holidays with their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren at their Briland home at the Narrows for almost fifty years. He is loved and missed.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the East End Hospice, PO Box 1048, Westhampton Beach, NY 11978.
