In Memory Of

Bob Byrnes

Bob Byrnes was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He also was a very special member of the Garden State Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group.  Bob had the ability to approach each task positively and readily; no task was too difficult for him to accomplish. Bob navigated his journey through Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis with dignity and grace. Unable to gain admission into a lung transplant program, Bob embraced his role as an Esbriet Ambassador, sharing his knowledge and insights into this life-threatening disease. Bob’s resolve and graceful acceptance of his eventual outcome was truly comforting and inspirational to others struggling with their journey. When Bob spoke, his approach was always gentle, supportive and respectful. He gave others confidence and greater meaning to their lives. Learning something new from Bob was really a reflection on your thoughts. All of us in the Garden State Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group were blessed to have known him.

William A. Keely, III

Billy, You were taken too soon and it’s not fair.
I’ll never forget the memories we share. Your caring heart
and loving smile made many lives more worthwhile.
Your generous heart saved the lives of five strangers.
Three are no longer strangers to your family and they are forever
They live on because you cared about others.
I miss you everyday and keep you in my heart.
‘Til we meet again, my loving son.

So much to admire about this woman, but I always wind up landing on the terrific family she & Ray built. She will be missed, but she left so much of herself in that family that she’ll always be around.
