Byron and I send our sympathy to you and the family. Your Dad always made a point in talking to us when Byron would be playing at the Moose.  He was always so glad to see us.  He lived a full life and loved to dance.

I always enjoyed Charley when we worked at Montgomery Wards together.  Also the times we would run into each other and spend a few minutes catching up.  I was always amazed at the way he could dance with a bad back.
