I offer my sincere condolences to the family of Byron. I knew Byron around 55 plus years ago. I met him via Joe Fisher, now deceased. I haven't seen Byron since those days, when we met at the New Yorker downtown, and drank Moscow Mules. Wayne Alley also was in the group that attended these sessions. My name is Bill Wolf from Mt. Carmel, Ill. and I am saddened to learn of Byron's passing. His obit stirred up old memories of our younger days. I may be wrong, but I berlierve that he was attending Evansville College in those days, along with Joe Fisher. Anyway, I'm remembering him in my prayers.

Jackie and Girl I am so so sorry to hear about Byrons passing. I know that this is such a great loss for both of you..Knowing that he is now in a better place with no ailments has to give you some great comfort! I am thinking of you all and praying that you are able to have some peace of mind knowing he is no longer suffering. He gave it a great fight and was a hell of a man. I feel honored to know him and consider him on of my friends. Love you both.
