Condolence & Memory Journal

I didn't know Byron, but his parents, sister Karen and brother Dexter. We knew the Copp family through First Congregational Church. Ester & Bob babysat our baby daughter while I returned to nurses' training at Concord Hospital. They were kind and generous. Bob was the principal at Loudon Elementary School. Later, we met them when they had moved to Florida. Byron, you will be missed.

My sincerest condolences on Byron's loss. Sadly, Byron is a cousin I haven't seen since I was a kid, but the memories I have of him are of him being "very cool", his smile from ear to ear and his warm and contagious laughter. My love and prayers to his family at this difficult time. RIP and God Bless, Byron.
