“My uncle Ben was a good man. My father -- his brother James Barrett aka Tony Barrett -- named one of my brothers after him in his memory and I wanted that to be known. Also my cousin Becky was only 2 months younger than me when she went missing at the age of about 5. To my family that might be looking for answers like me, feel free to contact me. Thanks. ” - cassandra
