"No one will ever be able to replace Senator Byrd. What a great loss to our state. He did not have to spend MILLIONS of dollars on re-elections. The next person will spend out the wazooo for his position. But they will not be able to accomplish anything near what Senator Byrd did for the state. An honest man who did not take kickbacks or gifts in order to get what he wanted in Congress. One of a kind.
No one in Congress knows the Constitution like he did.
God love his heart and may he Rest in Peace."

"My Grandfather, Chester Smith, grew up next Robert Byrd. My Grandfather and Grandmother kept in touch with him until they passed. My Grandfather actually taught Robert how to drive, which I am sure was not so easy on those mountains in West Virginia! He will be missed by many. My prayers go out to his family at this difficult time. May God Bless you all.

"Robert Byrd will be sorely missed for his unique intelligence, personal style and compassion. He was a great man. I have admired him, watched his speeches, and even have his fiddle record from long ago. I feel a sense of deep, personal loss.
My husband died about a year ago while we were at our West Virginia property. He would call me in to watch whenever Senator Byrd was speaking on TV. He loved Senator Byrd. I imagine they and many others are having a celebratory hoedown in Heaven."
