I was not fortunate to know Mr. Byrd and his family. I did know who he was if I heard his name mentioned, but I must admit that during the trbute in this morrnings news with Josh I cried when we were all told of the many, many things he and his family had done for children. What a great man he was. How generous and caring for the areas children. No doubt those who knew him were made better by knowing him. He made the world a better place. My deepest,truest sympathy goes out to all that knew him and espescially to his family. Heaven is surely a better place with Mr. Byrd and no doubt he is watching over children there. P.

Our family was deeply saddened by the news of Jeff Byrd's passing. Jeff was a friend of Nascar, Drag Racing and our family. I remember a few years back Tom Jr. calling me from Jeff's office at Bristol Motor Speedway and told me he had been visiting with Jeff for the past half hour and WHAT a nice person Jeff was. Just small talk, but our son was impressed that Jeff who was a VERY busy man, would take a few minutes to talk about drag racing with him.

I didn't know Jeff as well as my kids, I remember him well from his days at R.J. Renyolds and NHRA, but I'm lucky enough to recently meet and become friends with his son Christian Byrd, the executive director and general manager of zMAX Dragway. I have ALWAYS said: "Children ARE nothing but a reflection of their parents" so judging from the nice young man Christian is, Jeff MUST of been one FINE person!

Jeff will be deeply missed by all of racing and this family.
