I have known Bynum and his family all my life. He was the sweetest man. I remember when I was young my dad and mom always playing cards with Bynum, Verna, Barabara and Earl Pennell. All the kids running in and out of the house having a good time. Verna taught me how to make turkey stuffing. So many memories. I loved Bynum like a 2nd dad. My heart and prayers are with the family. He was a great man. God Bless. Love Rachel Angley Suttle.
