Pat, I am passing on my condolences to you and your family. I know Dad would have remember talking with Boyce for hours at a time and Boyce helping him with several projects. And, then for his help, being granted permission to hunt on our property.

Boyce was a hard working man. He taught me how to drive a tractor and tend to the garden and animals. His hands always reminded me that our work was never done. He had his own way of letting you know you were loved. A dear man that meant so much to me during my teenage years. My deepest condolences to the Cross family.
