K Karen Holmes on Jul 20, 2022

So many wonderful memories growing up next door to the Byros!
I can still remember the smell of Bob's pipe as he sat in the backyard smoking it while we kids played outside in the evening. One of my childhood prized possessions was the stuffed Pillsbury Doughboy toy Bob gave me. Back in the '60s, I thought he must have made a LOT of money working for Kraft because the Byros had an air conditioner and Able-Cable!
I'm sorry for the loss of your dad/grandpa, but so thankful for my memories. With ❤ to you all,
Karen Holmes
