My earliest memory of Byrd, from the 7th grade at Baton Rouge Junior High School, is of an observant, thoughtful, and kind friend. Since our days there and in high school together, I've visited with Byrd at BRHS reunions and once in New Haven. I learned much from the obituary, but there's no surprise in learning he led a brilliant and accomplished life and career.
