Dear Byron, I am sooo sad to hear that my favorite ,cute couple from the Village have been taken away from each other.
I remember seeing you both the last time at Queens General and having quite the lively conversation with you both and remember you both saying you were “Still kickin”. We had some laughs and I was so glad to see you both. The Evans
Village Shoppe Store was a huge part of my life where I met lots of sweet people like you both. I used to love the way you and Joyce would banter with each other and the chuckles we would have .You and Joyce both had the type of laugh that when you both laughed all that worked there could not help but laugh along with you both.I am sure you will miss her dearly and I wanted to let you know that I will be praying and thinking of you at this difficult time. May the memories you shared together flood your heart and give you great comfort and peace at this time. Hugs to you Byron.Take care,Linda Williams
