Sarah Price – “I met Jimmy Byrd when I started Rossville Middle School, he was dating my best friend and they introduced me to his brother. We all double dated for a long time. I remember when he got the key to WFLI, we were sophomores and he was so excited, he turned his class picture, that we swapped, over and traced the key on it! He was a fun loving good guy! I was so saddened to hear he had passed away!”

Yvonne Trammel – “We moved to Rossville when I was 6 yrs old and we lived next door to Jimmy in Rossville from 1965-1976. He dated my aunt for a short time. He was always a very sweet person. I do have pictures of him then.”
