    My deepest condolences to Byron’s family. He was a special person and I had the honor of meeting him 17 years ago when I first became employed with NYS. He was always smiling and willing to help anyone who came across his path. I am so sorry to hear that he has been called to heaven.
    He will be missed. May he RIP.
