Dear Don, and family, My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Words just can’t express how bad I feel for all of you.
Dear Donnie & Kevin,
I was so sorry to learn of your mom’s death. I did have the opportunity to meet her and she was a lovely person. I did not stop at the funeral home as I just lost my father last week. Again, I am so sorry.
My sincere condolences go out to the Boyd family.
I have been fortunite to know Betty for almost all her life,
I have talked to her and rode her to work when she didn’t have a ride.
She was a great person to know and I will always remember
her in my heart.
To all of you,
We were all saddened to hear of your loss. There are no words to express just how sorry we feel for all of you. May the memories that you have of her put a smile back in your heart one day soon.
All of our love,
Cheri, Carl, Michael & Carlee
