NC: she was the kind of p.d. I wish I'd known

From the Winston-Salem Journal:

Amy Byrd fought for the indigent but lost her life to cancer

If you knew Amy Byrd, you are either a lawyer, you know one or you have been seated on the wrong end of the defendant's bench in the Forsyth County Hall of Justice. Whatever the case, you probably came away admiring her...

Byrd was smart, friendly and funny... She was also very sick. Barely 30 years old, already a cancer survivor and married for just over a year, Byrd got bad news a few days before Christmas...
