To the Byrd family. I am very sorry for the loss of Bobby and wish you every comfort as a family. He will be missed by many fine people I am sure, but no more than the Paris Landing Golf Course staff and all of our guests. We appreciate his service to the course and the community and wish all of the family well as we celebrate his life.
