My deepest condolences to you and your family. I am just finding out about the sudden passing of Ian. He was one of my regulars at Quality Mart. I came to know and love him when I was working fulltime third shift. I would talk to him about how much he had to give in this life and told him I would continue to pray for him to be safe. The last time I saw him was a few weeks before I went out on Medical leave in March and he was so happy and had that smile that that brightened up a room. He was only a few months older than my oldest son. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family always.

I just wanted to express my deepest condolences for your family. The Byrds remember our son, Tyler, playing ball with Hunter, and watching Reagan & Ian running around as little toddlers at the young sporting events of their older brothers. We have fond memories of the Overton family, and are sorry beyond words for your unthinkable loss. You are in our hearts and prayers. Sincerely, Beth Byrd

Rita and Trip
You all are in our prayers during this most sad and difficult time. The first time I saw Ian, he had followed Hunter and Austin to our house. They were on their bikes and little Ian had followed them walking barefoot in his diaper and t-shirt. He was such an adorable sight. I will never forget that day and I am truly glad to have that memory of him. Love to all of you.
