Rufus' Latest Interactions
My earliest memories of Byron are moving pictures of us in Sr. John Bosco's 1st grade classroom at Holy Ghost Elementary School before consolidaton (AIC/Holy Ghost School). Byron was well-liked_ a force of nature, and I was a quiet kid. But you know what? He made me and the rest of us who were rather shy feel like we were a part of the group, and I will never forget that. As we grew and took somewhat divergent paths in school and life, Byron remained unseasonal, always the same friend I had met so many years before. What a mighty, welcoming spirit! May we forever remember his ready smile and thunderous laughter that (I suspect) came from pure joy.
