Brian Byrne (1948-2013)
Brian and I celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary two weeks ago. Our commitment to each other was total, and the time we spent apart in 41 years can be measured in minutes. I am certain of his love for me. Many of you know he would publicly proclaim it on stage at Pearl – much to my embarrassment.
My heart is broken, yet I know the love we both felt with our Pearl family will always be a sweet comfort. I hear him singing “Far Side Banks of Jordan” and know he waits for me......“Love, you will reside in my heart until I see you once again in God’s grace.” ~ Elaine, 10/2/13
A memorial service was held to celebrate Brian at the Williamson County Association of REALTORS, 123 Old Settlers Blvd., Round Rock, TX 78664 on Sunday, October 6 at 3 p.m. Many of Brian’s friends gathered to join Elaine in a farewell.

Please, no flowers. Donations to Pearl Community Center or your favorite charity in Brian’s name would be a wonderfully suitable act of love. Sympathy can be addressed to Elaine at 17021 Ennis Trail, Austin, TX 78717 or by e-mail at email@example.com. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
