StoryCorps' MobileBooth is in Kansas City until September to collect the stories and memories of residents. This is one in a series of stories KCUR has chosen to highlight.
Joel Barrett and David Seymour first met because of a scarf.
"I remember your scarf," Barrett said. "It was a very colorful striped scarf, and I used that as my entry point to have a conversation with you."
Barrett and Seymour came from very different backgrounds, particularly when it came to religion.
