We think of you on this special day and everyday. You have a wonderful family that is left here on earth. May the Lord find us worthy to join you, and both moms/wifes in heaven, and others that we have lost along the way. Love always, with a broken heart, Barbara and Jay Jesus

It's that time of year when our hearts even ache more to have you both near us. We know you are all waiting for us in heaven to meet again. You would be most disturbed at "todays" political issues and shaking your head as usual. Pray for the best in our new year! Think of you often and all those who have passed on. Love, Barbara and Jay

Merry Christmas Dad, we all remember how much you enjoyed this time of the year. It's another reason we miss you so much.

Love, Butch, Reah and family.

Hi Dad, Happy Thanksgiving. We just had dinner with Kara and family. We are having dessert and will be singing Happy Birthday to you and Kara. We wish you and Gramma Jo were with us.

Love, Butch Reah and family.

Ed use to rave how his birthday was near Thanksgiving so I always think of it as being that. We had some great times together, but not enough. Like the saying goes, too old too soon, too smart too late! May everyone be thankful for their family times, stay close s much as possible. In the end, that is all that matters! Love Bobbie and Jay and family.

Thirteen years we had to say a final good by. It was heartbreaking then and we still feel your loss today. We miss you everyday.

We remember you every day. “Grief is a journey, often perilous and without clear direction, that must be taken. The experience of grieving cannot be ordered or categorized, hurried or controlled, pushed aside or ignored indefinitely. It is inevitable as breathing, as change, as love. It may be postponed, but it will not be denied.”

The miserable year of death, 2020, is behind us now and a vaccine is on the way. Although many have passed on from where they lived here on earth, Heaven is their home to which they return. Mom, and our step dad Ed, shared their wonderful family with her. They were always by their side: helping them, having family get togethers, taking them to Bingo, visiting at their home, sharing their children with her and grandchildren. To all of them I thank you for sharing your time, family and lives with her. Your DAD took her back to NY to visit her family several times. She was very lucky to have found someone as great as your DAD, who was, in so many ways, like our DAD. Sweet, kind, considerate. A special thankyou to Butch and Reah for sharing the way all those years. Barbara, Jay and Family.

This is when we miss everyone the most. At least we have all the wonderful memories to look back on. Wish we could all be together again.

Love,

The holidays bring back so many memories and often our own good memories become the very things that pierce our hearts. Ed was a real trooper in more ways than one. He was a wonderful man, step-father and husband. He loved playing bingo at the Casinos (he was such a trooper driving mom back and forth), eating at IHOP-the workers loved when you two came in 3-4 times a week. Mom would say TodaLoo to everyone. Ed would be shaking his head" the way he did" at what is going on right now with the virus and the government. We wish there had been more retirement years to spend with you both but you both made it to 90 and 93! We pray for you and all the other loved ones who have had to move onto heaven-each person with its own personal grief. Our loved ones hate to leave us also so the grief is both ways. Bobbie and Jay..Miss ya both.

Another holiday season starts without you. We would be getting together for a good game of Mexican train- which you did enjoy! We can see you shaking your head and making that low "growling" sound when you lost or got frustrated! You and Mom loved Bingo also and thank you for caring for her so well, even when the going got tough. You did good and were a great husband, Dad and Grandpa. Rest easy till the Lord lets us meet in eternal heaven-as we try to be worthy-Love always, Barbara and Jay

We took flowers yesterday to the cemetery and as we were sitting there, memories popped into our head. Remember when they use to visit the Los Alamitos Racetrack? And how they loved playing Mexican Train? We remember and smile. Miss you all until we meet again. Barbara and Jay

Thought of you on Father's Day and thank you again for being married to our Mom-you two were great all those years. When I look back at the last year of Mom's life, her memory was stronger than ever with regards to you and she constantly asked about you and how much she missed you. Once in awhile I would think, is the Lord trying to tell me something? He was and henceforth, he finally took her to you. May your souls be together for eternity. Miss you both-miss you all. To all those who have lost their Dads-they are part of who you are!

Happy Fathers Day Dad, its just not the same without you. We all miss you.

Another holiday season has passed and we wish all of you were still with us. We know how much you all looked forward to Christmas and getting together. We miss that the most.

I can just hear Ed saying, "no pictures" and giving us that "look". He did not like having his picture taken. Thank goodness we ignored him. It's been well over ten years but we still miss his comments and chit chat. Your family is proud of having such a wonderful father; I am sure. You were tired; life had become such a struggle but now you have the bliss of heavenly afterlife with mom and all your relatives. Love, Bobbie and Jay

Here we are, another Christmas and headed to a New Year. God was good to all of us and gave us many good times together with family and friends. Memories of you are still vivid: your soul is in the hands of God and the angels. Miss you always.

As we remember you on your birthday we think of all the good things you did to help everyone and how good you treated our MOM. May heaven be everything you prayed for as you all celebrate together in eternity, never to be separated again. Miss you. Love Barbara, Jay and family.

Edward George Byrne III is my father. He never tried to be my best friend.
That wasn't his job. He taught me the values of being a good person, doing the right thing and treating people the way I wanted to be treated.
He was always there when I stumbled and needed him to pick me up. He was there for everyone in his immediate family and his new one. I am always so proud when I would meet someone who knew him and would say "Oh you're Ed's son, he is such a nice man. He was everything a father should be. To me he is so much more. He is my Dad. I love & miss him every day. He has made me so proud to say that I am Edward George Byrne IV his son.

Ed was a kind, generous man and a wonderful husband to my mom. They lived a beautiful life together, sharing wonderful memories and fun times with family and friends. Now they are together again for eternity. Miss you both until we are together again.
