Dear family and friends of Byron, I just wanted you to know about the last time I saw the two of them. I was waiting to see
my doctor for an appointment and I saw him wheeling Joyce in for her appointment. He was always quite the card; always
joking and laughing. I told them both it was nice to see the cutest couple from the” village ” and they laughed and Byron
said “We’re still kickin” . He was always coming into the village store and picking on all of us that worked there along with
always chuckling and carrying on with Teddy and Freeman.He and Joyce were quite the couple. I never usually seen one
without the other and now I am sure they have reunited once again. Prayers of comfort to you all at this sad time. Take care.Linda Williams(former employee of the Mill Village Store)
