  1. Stacey L Jennings & Family

    My heart goes out to the entire Boyd family. Please take comfort in knowing that he will live on in your hearts forever. I know he was surrounded by your love and care in his last days and that gave him peace to move on to his next destination. I sincerely send my sympathy to you in your time of grief. Prayers for you all.

    To the Boyd family. My heart is with you and your family at this time of your loss. There is comfort in knowing God’s promises about the resurrection hope. (Acts 24:15) and (John 5:28,29) In the past God has resurrected humans and He is eager to do it again because He hates death. (Mark 5:41-43) It is not God’s purpose originally that we grow old, get sick or die. To learn more about God’s promises go to JW.ORG. There are online Bible study lessons featured and more. Love Your Neighbor Irish J. Richardson

    To the Boyd Family, I am so, so sorry to hear my good friend passing away, I know he went through a lot from the last time I talked with him, we were close friends fore a number of years, I will continue to pray for the family, knowing that God’s will has been done.

  4. Death can be one of the most difficult things in life to endure. The loss of a love one can cause tremendous grief, pain and sorrow. But knowing that the Grand Creator of the Universe, Jehovah God,, views Death as an enemy should give us hope for a different future (1 Corinthians 15:26; Psalms 83:18). In this future that we’re promised, in the Bible, it expresses the end of Death, Pain and Sorrow. How great it will be to see our dear love ones again (Revelation 21:3,4). Trust in the Resurrection Hope will sustain us until we meet our love ones again (John 5:28,29). Please accept this message as my heartfelt condolences to the family.

  5. To the Boyd family, children and Pastor Williams. My husband and myself want you to know we are thinking of you in this time of your loss. While God knows best we know that you will greatly miss your father and friend. The bible says “Blessed are those who mourn”, (Matthew 5:4). These are times when it takes the power of God to see us through. So we will be praying for the peace of God to carry you though. God bless we love you. Anthony and Vanessa Porter

  6. I will remember Julius smile.I meet him when I was a teenager my brother,Fred, introduced him to our family. Praying that our heavenly Father will comfort you today and the days ahead.
