Lifelong friends of the late Sen. Robert C. Byrd, from left, Sandy Riddle Blevins, Hilda Braker Keatley, Kathryne Light Williams and Tracy Hylton, are shown with news clippings collected over the years. For those who remember Byrd playing violin in the high school orchestra or percussion in concert band, there is no doubt in their minds that, as Hylton said, “history will show that he has been an outstanding senator.”
