Jeff, I am saddened to learn that you have lost your Dad. I faintly remember how supportive he was of you and Charlie with little league football in Roebuck - Huffman, so many years ago.

So sorry to hear of Gene's passing. I knew Gene through my husband, Gary E. McCullough. Gary was crazy about Gene, but everybody loved Gene! Also, my in-laws went to Woodlawn with Gene and from what I'm told were very close friends with him. They are Mac and Evelyn McCullough. Evelyn has passed down many wonderful stories of their friendship and sends her thoughts and prayers to your whole family.As Gary and I do also. He will be missed. Praying for you all!

I worked at Bank of Alabama with Gene Byrd. He was a sweet man and loved his family dearly. He always brought me hydrangeas from his yard and we had the best talks. He had such a warm smile. May he rest in sweet peace.
