During the reading, George first mentioned that Kenneth Silverman's father was with him. He then said that their son was with them as well. He accurately noted that his name was Barry and that his death was due to something with his lungs and chest.
He also gave the Silvermans a message from their son: "Now, when you leave here, you leave here with peace. You didn't fail me. Now, you stop feeling guilty. Let that go and put your heart at rest". Barry's family left the session satisfied that they had contacted with Barry from the afterlife.
Extra Notes: The case was featured as a part of the November 18, 1992 episode about psychic George Anderson.
