    Mary, we are so sad to hear of Boyd’s passing. He will always be remembered for his playful jokes and great personality. He was so fun to be around like when he put my mom`s car up on blocks during a family event. Still can’t believe he pulled it off without getting caught. We will always remember those times with a smile. Praying that you and the family find peace at this difficult time.
