It is with profound sadness that we share with you the news of our beloved professor and friend Dr. Byrne, who passed away in his sleep on May 17. Services were held this past weekend in Chicago, where as most of you know, Dr. Byrne and his family called home for many years. As alumni of our UM Department of Pathology, you either trained under him, worked with him, or consulted him for assistance on Hematopathology cases. Dr. Byrne was truly very special and will be deeply missed. We remain grateful for having had the opportunity to know him and to call him our friend.
