In Memoriam Richard J. Byrd Jr. 
July 19, 1980 - Aug.28, 1997
Happy 18th Birthday, Ricky 
Today is a very special day 
One we all looked forward to 
But instead of smiles and laughter 
We shed tears for you. 
Your leaving was so sudden, 
No warning, no time for goodbyes. 
You went to the beach to play that day 
Not knowing you would die. 
Your passing has left us helpless, 
Sorrow and sadness fill our days, 
For as much as you were loved 
We grieve for you each day. 
We know you are in heaven 
With our loving Father above 
For you chose His Son as your Savior 
Whom you worshipped and loved. 
Happy Birthday, Ricky Is our wish for you, dear son. 
We will hold our hugs and kisses for you Until our life is done. 
You remain forever in our hearts, Mom and Dad 

In Sad Loving Memory of Our Wife/Mother Lorrayne Rebolitti
Who died 5 years ago July 19, 1993
I saw you suffer, I heard your sighs,. 
With aching heart and weeping eyes, 
I saw you sinking hour by hour, 
Yet could not stay death's awful power. 
But now she calmly sleeps at last, 
All pain, all aches and suffering past. 
Forget her? No, I never shall, 
Friends may think the wound is healed, 
But they little know the grief 
Within my heart concealed. 
Though from me you had a pass, 
Your memory still dwells in my heart, 
And always will, 
Until we will be together again. 
Your husband, Joe daughters, Jolene and Linnea and grandchildren, Kirsten, Marc, Eric and Bret 
We Love and Miss You So Much
