So many times over the years, I have recalled fond memories of the Byce Family. I always glance at the entrance to what I remember as a curving dirt road to your parents' home, when I travel to Greensboro from my home in Spartanburg, S.C. Often, on a Sunday afternoon, my parents would drive us out for a visit. I remember Jim trying to teach me how to milk a cow.....I failed! I remember sometimes Sue was home from might as well have been New York! It was always a thrill for me when she was on the porch with her parents. I am so sorry for your's painful for me that another of my sweet memories is just that!
I know now why Heaven is going to last an's going to take Forever for us to reconnect with all those we knew and addition to meeting those who will have been there since the Beginning of Time!
Love and blessings,

Adrian and Linda Parham

It is always sad for a person to leave us like Sue. She was a very good and gentle Christian lady. As long as she was able to be in church, we sat with her on the same bench at Ebenezer Methodist Church in Conyers. We really enjoyed her friendship and she will be missed . May peace be with the family for God knows our sorrow.
