Ms. Boone, Andrea, Jo-"Jet", My deepest condolences go to you and please, please, please accept my apologies for not being in contact sooner. I learned sooo much about history of our people from our trips to Selma and conversations while cutting Rev. Boone's hair. The imprint has been left on my heart forever. You are in my prayers and know that I love you.

Very recently, in the pages that I am writing for my grandchildren to record my family history, I wrote about Rev. Boone. I was a teenager in the 1950s when Rev. Boone was appointed pastor of our Church in Anniston. He made a deep impact on my life then and that influence has continued throughout my life. I have never forgotten him. He formed a Junior Choir and, though I was not the world’s best piano player, he permitted me play for this choir, treating me as if I was a professional musician. It is still amusing to think of some of the “bad” kids, including my youngest brother, whom he convinced to join the choir. I don’t remember that the church had Vacation Bible School before he arrived. He also provided camping trips for some of the young people. I was just a little bit too old, and felt envy of those who did travel to the Birmingham campground. Rev. Boone had a warm charm which commanded our respect. His sermons were memorable, as was his eulogy at my father’s funeral. After all these many years, I am able to think of him as a man of integrity, wisdom and good will. We loved him! That’s just it! My condolences are offered to Rev. Boone’s family. Thank you for sharing him with us.

Rev Boone had a very direct impact in my sisters and brothers early life while attending school;(Haugabrooks Academy) Rush Memorial Church is where the Black Private School started in the early 60's, The Johnson Kids was the 1st class thanks to his generiosity to Ms. Sullivan and this is where he gave all of us the vision, wisdom and knowledge that we could make a difference in so many lives as youth and the importance of contributions and giving back. My family and myself attended many programs, protest marches etc.. and he utilize us to be some of the 1st kids to integrate the white church and summer church religious camps. He was a Visionary and I will never forget what he gave to my siblings and myself. He very much inspire my life and some of his early trainings I still utilize today. We will miss him but never forget such a Giant who gave each day of himself. I remember his beautiful wife who played for the church and her dainty lady like ways,and quiet contributions as well. I am now 53 years of age and have never forgot what he gave to us all in the Civil Rights Days. May God Be With The Family and Give them Continous Fund Memories of this Giant Of A Man.
