Thank you for your service to this nation.
“Virginia Has Lost One Of Its Greatest Statesmen. My Condolences To His Family, Friends And To The People Of Virginia. He Will Be Truly Missed!
“My prayers are with the Byrd family for the loss of a true gentleman. I will remember the day he came to my granddaddy's funeral, who was a friend to him-Ralph Dorsey, in Berryville in 1990. That meant alot to my grandmother, Sadie, at the time. The Byrds and Dorseys go back a very long way. The Byrds are a wonderful family to support each other in this time of loss. May Peace be with all.
“My condolences to the family during this time of sorrow. John 5:28
