The funeral for the son of late DC Mayor Marion Barry will be held tonight at 7 p.m. at the Temple of Praise. The City was hit hard last week with the passing of Christopher Barry, especially when the news that his cause of death was drug related. He was only 36 years old and died from a drug overdose.
With the legacy of Mayor Marion Barry deeply connected to drugs, in the eyes of some, the news that his son’s death had a similar connection is troubling; almost like, a reminder of the continued impact that drugs have in our community.
Hopefully, the community comes out and shows love the legend and legacy of the Barry family.
