Not sure what to say?

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Sorry to hear of Bykes passing. A real nice guy. I worked with him at Bendix. Knew Louie as well. The Charles family are real good people.

My condolences to the Charles family. My memories of Byke & other family members, go all the way back to the late 50's when he worked with my mom (Hazel Blaisure) at the Banner Shoe Factory. I was about 12 yrs old at the time & came & bought a horse from he & his dad. He was so helpful to my mom & I. I also have memories of his sister, Joan, & brother, Don. May your whole family be comforted at this sad time.
