I am a huge Fanilow and had the good fortune of meeting and spending a little time with Barry a few years ago. He is beautifully down-to-earth, and the enthusiasm and joy he exudes is infectious. Of course, I had to inquire about his greatest epiphany, and I am elated that he was able to contribute his special piece to the book about the power of love.
