I didn't know Mr Bynum In person, but I feel I have known him in a different way, through his daughter Sherry. We learn an awful lot from our momma and daddy and having known Sherry for 7 years now, I know Mr Bynum was a stand up guy who had your back. The legacy he has left through his service to country, family, friends and community will have an impact for a long long time. Offering my sincere condolences to all of Mr Bynum's family and my prayers for God's comfort to you as no one else possibly can comfort as God comforts.
With greatest respect and Christian love,
