Dear Family,I will truely miss Great Uncle AB - I will never forget how much he made me laugh as a child. Especially when he called my mom "LaGoo" instead of LaRue. I didn't get the opportunity to spend time with him the last few years but he will always have a very special place in my heart. Love & Prayers go out to all of youfrom Sherie Johnstun Hartman

Byron, Of all the riches, wealth, fortune and fame one seeks in this life, perhaps the greatest treasure we receive is God's first and finest gift of a loving parent. To know from the moment of birth that we are loved and cared for ... this is the foundation that allows us to take our first baby steps then giant steps into the adventure of life. I suspect your father was the kind of man who provided this cornerstone for you and for many in life. I celebrate with you his kind and graceful life and grieve with you the loss of his presence.

Byron,I was bowled over to read your dad's obituary and find the names of Gene and Joy Wade who have been great friends and examples to us here in Arizona. We were in the Mesa 15/Lazona wards together for 20 years. They are wonderful parents and examples to all here in Mesa.My condolences on your loss and the passing of your father. We only get one set of parents in this lifeand they bring safety and learning and guidance. I know he was a great man.
