Elaine,
I am so sorry to hear of Byron's sudden passing last week. I had just seen him at Shellnutt`s office the week before. I am only in there for a short time to help out but I am so glad I was able to see him then.
We all enjoyed him coming in with his work each quarter and will really miss him.

My prayers go out for you and your family at this sad time. God bless!
