"I'll See You When I See You, My Friend"

"I'll See You When I See You, My Friend"

The workers' compensation industry recently suffered a huge loss with the passing of Byron Jerome Wynn, who—along with his 8-year-old son, Alex—was tragically killed on the Artesia Freeway in Bellflower on December 6, 2008.

A mountain of a man with a heart to match, Mr. Wynn had worked as a Hearing Representative, mainly at the Los Angeles WCAB, since 1991 until his untimely death.

Known in workers' compensation circles for his smile and warm words of encouragement for everyone he met, Mr. Wynn was a beloved individual at AIG and the LA WCAB. The love and respect he earned in the industry were made obvious by the hundreds of mourners who attended his funeral on December 13, 2008. Amongst the speakers at the funeral was Mr. Aaron Rinehart, who worked with Mr. Wynn at AIG. There was not a dry eye when Mr. Rinehart recited the words that Mr. Wynn repeated so very often: "I'll see you when I see you, my friend."

Byron is survived by his wife (Alex's mother), Virginia McCoy Wynn, and his stepson, Everett White. Please address donations for the Wynn family to:

The BIG trial is about to begin. The defense attorney (DA) scans the waiting room for the star defense witness (Star) to arrive. DA and Star have spoken about this case at great length. The matter cannot be won without Star. But where is Star?

"My witness will show up," mumbles DA to himself. "He's got to show up."

But when the judge looks to DA to begin his defense, Star is no where to be seen.

DA stutters.

DA stammers.

DA, scratching his head, recalls a couple of cites and mumbles something about Kuykendall and Tyler.2

DA asks for a continuance…
