Dear Judy

We are very sorry for the loss of your beloved Boyd. We enjoyed your company so much when we were in Florida, baseball game, conservation area - and dinner at your place - among some of our good memories - and oh yes, Judy, our walk around the park. Remember Boyd and Tom trying to fix the smoke alarm at Carol's - oh my - they were working on the wrong one. Take care Judy, we hope to see you at some point.

Sincerely, with love

Dear Judy and family,
We were shocked and saddened to learn of Boyd’s death. We had a great conversation with him not long before we left for Spain; he was telling us about Rob’s health issues and we were just ‘catching each other up’ in general.

Our strongest memories of Boyd will be his ready smile; positive outlook, even in difficult circumstances; and his support and friendship as a neighbour.

We wish we could be offering condolences in person, Judy, but we will continue to think of you and keep all of you in our prayers.

With affection, Jim and Peggy
