To the Boyd family, I am so sorry to hear about your daddy. He was my sister's (Sadie Grissom) next door neighbor for a long, long time. He was always such a good neighbor, bringing her vegetables, etc out of his garden. She thought the world of him. The neighborhood will not be the same without him there and I am sure the "guys" will miss their card games every week. May God bless all of you in this time of sorrow.

I am sorry to hear of Frank's passing. Frank and I worked together years ago at Vocational Rehabilitation in Butner. I ran into him again at the GAP about 15 years ago. Thank you, David, for walking with him. Your dad was a good man. He loved all of you and missed "Charlie" so much. I would tease him about being a "Duke" fan!! You will be missed.
