    My condolences to Uncle Byron's family. I have such fond memories of times in Nova Scotia at Grammie and Grampa Longs--and Byron on the couch with his brothers--making music and laughing. And Clara you know you were named after my mother. Even though I haven't met Dawson, Bill and Martin I do think of you as family and know how hard it is to lose a parent but how wonderful he had such a great and long life. My sympathy to you all.
