    My heart goes out to all of the Kincaid family….thinking of you all and knowing how much Byron will be missed.

  3. Marsha Caswell says:

    Judy & family …. When I was telling Ron about Byron he couldn’t quite place him as he had only met him once. When I started to remind him about Leo’s 70th birthday party, Ron said, ” Oh, I remember him…he was the guy with the big smile “. I guess that says it all…he had the most terrific smile and laughing eyes. We are so saddened for your family, and you, that he is gone, but how lucky were all who could call him “friend”.
