I was sorry to hear about your father&s passing. I remember you showing me a picture of your father and so enjoyed hearing you talk about the love and pride you have for your father and entire family. No better way that you could ever honor your father than that. My deepest sympathy to you, Julie and entire family.

Bob and family;

Wayne was a great person and helpful to all he knew.
We have many fond memories of all our association and fun times we enjoyed with all the family as you grew up.
Stop and see us when in Naples.

Bob,

I read the obituary of your father and ninety-five years is a rich fruitful life. He was a very giving man. He donated much of his time for others as the list is long.

I imagine those last days you spent together will make for some lasting very special moments.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May your Dad rest in peace.

Your Bro,

Jim Dickmeyer

Mr. Bryd will be missed. He use to come in M.C.L. for lunch almost everyday when I was head cashier. He always had a smile on his face and so very friendly. He was a great man.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dear Byrd Family,
Please accept my brother, sister and my condolences on the death of your father, Wayne. He was a very familiar face to us as he and my father, Richey Sims were both Equitable agents with their CLU&s. He was Dad&s district manager and we remember many visits that he and my parents had at our home. My mother and father thought very highly of Wayne and spoke of him and to him often. Please accept our sympathies.
Nancy, Carl and Melissa
