    I offer my deepest condolences to the Byers Family. I met Missionary Byers in 1975 and I lived in Tacoma, WA for 28 years. I have a wonderful experience of seeing and hearing Missionary Byers minister from time to time. What an absolute Power House Woman of God. Needless to say, she will be greatly missed. Lovingly, Missionary Dotha Evans and family.

    To the Byers Family,
    We extend our sincerest condolences to you on the passing of a wonderful saint…Mother Byers. It was she and her husband, Elder Byers, that convinced me to “seek the Lord” back in 1969 when he and I worked at Atlas Foundry. A great woman of God. She will be missed.
