My deepest condolences to Mrs. Boyd's family. Mrs. Boyd was my grandmother's sister. She spoke of her often as I was growing up. If she was anything like my grandmother, she was quite a woman and will be missed.
Dowell family, My heart goes out to you at this time. I remember Grandma Boyd as such a wonderful and kind lady. Joyce, no matter what time in life you lose your mother, I truley believe it is one of the most difficult times. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers. Love and respect, Peggy
I hadn't heard this news until this morning at church and I was both surprised and saddened. Virginia was a lovely person and always had a sweet and generous spirit about her. I remember that after Eugene passed away, she came to me as her pastor at the time, and wanted to do something for the church and told me that it was her pleasure to do so because she "had been blessed." She was referring to her life with her family and with her church. I consider myself blessed to have known her–and her family–for so many years. I know I'll never forget her. I also have a framed needle-point which she gave our family some years ago. It has always been on display. Now it has even more value because it was a gift from Virginia. My prayers are that the Lord will give you His peace and comfort and surround you with the precious memories of this fine lady.
