Attended church with Dorothy and her husband for a short while. She always had a quick wit and was in love with Jesus. She was well cared for in the later years and came to church dressed so pretty.

To the Boyce family my sincerest condolences. Mr. and Mrs. Boyce are now united in Heaven and will be waiting on each and every one of their family when that person's time comes. That is the joy we have in the plan of eternal salvation in Jesus. Prayers for strength and courage at this difficult time.

I grew up with the Boyces. Half the kids in our small neighborhood in Rawlings were Boyces. To be honest I think I spent more time in their house than I did my own! Dot was always in a dress with an apron on cooking or cleaning. Many fond memories in her home. She was special ❤
