Ms. Boyd, It seems as if yesterday that we were sitting at the table playing uno, sipping on tea, and laughing about some poor soul! We had our good times, and it was a real pleasure getting to know you personally, the inside person, the humorous side of you. It was very difficult watching you endure the sickness that you went through as you struggled to recover from your illness. We as humans don`t know why things such as cancer has to occur to great people like yourself, but thats in God`s hands and He knows the reason! You were placed on Earth for a limited time to share your love with family and friends and we`re all much better as individuals now after having you in our lives! We will always treasure this time spent with you! Now our Father God has brought you home to be with Him and previuous loved ones who passed before you! We hate to have to let you go, but know that you will be waiting with open arms with love and joy to see us join you in heaven when our time comes! I love you and hope to see you again so we can continue with the laughs and humor while we walk the streets of gold! With Love, Barry G. Martin

i hear that its supposed to get easier as time goes by, but i don't think that's true. i miss you so much more each day. your were, and still are my hero, and i thank God he blessed me by letting you be in my life. its especially hard waking up in our room, and you aren't laying right there beside me. there has been so many things i have wanted to tell you, and i just miss your conversations in general. you would have been so proud of me at graduation, but i know you were looking down on me, happy. there are also little things that happen, that show me that you're looking down on us. mama says so many things that you said, or reminds me of you, it always puts a smile on my face. even though i miss you like crazy, it gives me so much relief knowing that you aren't in pain anymore. its overwhelming to think that you've seen how beautiful heaven is, and you've seen the face of Jesus. memaw, i know you're still in my heart, and i think of you each day. i miss you more than words can express, and i love you so much.

love always and forever,

Memaw,
I can't believe its been over 7 months since you've been gone. It never gets easy, but we constantly remind ourselves that you're in a much better place. Greg and I miss you so much and think about you every single day. Things are looking up for us and we've had so many things happen that we haven't wanted to share with you. Sometimes without thinking one of us will pick up the phone to call you and then reality sets in. You are missed more than words can describe and I'm so thankful that I got to know you...I see so much of your personality in Greg and it makes me smile. We miss you so much and love you even more.
Love always,

Mama,
Every day gets harder without you!I know you would want me to focus on my life and the girls, but i am so lost in this world without you, my best friend. I know you are in a better place with your loved ones and the cancer is gone from your body and you are beyond happy, and for those reasons i wouldnt wish you back.
I go to sleep thinking of you and i wake up thinking of you. you made such an impact in my life and it is so hard to figure out how to continue without you.I miss our coffee in the mornings and the laughs we shared, and the love and support you gave. we shared a bond that no other could understand and for that i am so honored. i lost so much november 18 2010, but i will never forget! A part of you lives on in me. i miss you more than words can say and the love i have for you is even beyond that. Thinking of you always,
"little wen"

Memaw,
You're on my mind today more than usual. I woke up thinking about you and have been crying off and on all day. I miss you so much and wish more than anything I could hear your sweet voice or hold your hand one more time. We all try to remind ourselves that you're in a much better place and with your parents and Wink...that makes us smile, but it's still hard without you here. I love you so much and can't wait until we meet again...Love Always
