Boyd...My condolences to all...am keeping family in thought & meditation...please let me know if you need anything...with much love & peace,Lisa
You will be missed here. I will keep in my Heart and mind all the wisdom you've given me over the years. I will do my best to pass it on to those I love and cherish. Please ask all to send prayers down to us all.
To the Walton family, after hearing of Rev Walton's passing I was compelled to let you know that as a young girl when I knew him, I thought he was the warmest, most sincere an honest man I'd ever met, his love for his wife and family shined bright! He set the bar high, Peace to you.
To my Uncle Boyd whose stature, voice, and wisdom held such gravitas in my life and many others. As a young teen, he was the first elder male figure in my family who I knew had both undergrad and graduate degrees and took the time to read and edit some of early essays and gave me such rich commentary. Later, when I decided to come out as gay, he was the first male family member who told me that I was just fine and moreover, he helped me to see the biblical debate on where God stood on gay matters. And even though Uncle Boyd never told me which was the "right" way on this issue, he was the first Christian man in my family who presented logical and historical context to consider how I might interpret scripture. It was this process itself, being affirmed by an elder male family member, who helped me start to pursue my understanding of God for myself without fear, but with an embrace for whatever my journey would lead me! While in college, I sometimes visited my Uncle Boyd and Aunt Eddie, who were essentially second grandparents to me, gave me a small leather bounded bible and in it Uncle Boyd wrote this in it, "This book has taken me to many places, I pray it do the same for you. And wherever you go, be sure to leave a trail..." Well Uncle Boyd, I want to thank you for all you've been to me in my life and know that you have left many good trails for all of us so I hope I can fulfill your wishes to do the same.
Love from your Grandnephew, Theodore
To the Walton family,
I am so sorry for your loss. May God provide the comfort you need now and in the days ahead.
God has chosen yet another soul to sit by the side of the Almighty as a reward for the life led on this earth for the Glory of His Kingdom. RIP Boyd Walton Jr. You will be missed by many and loved by all.
Cousin Boyd will be missed by the family. I will miss his stories, his wisdom, and his soft-spoken nature. I enjoyed speaking with him about the family and learning about our people.
Boyd now rests with our ancestors and is enjoying himself at the biggest and best family reunion ever!
May God comfort the family during this time of transition.
Tony and April Hill

I pray that Mother is there to greet you, I can't call you any more and I will miss talking to you. But tell her I did my best to stay in touch.
I love you Bro: Buddie
Dad, Love you and Miss you. Rest In Peace.
Dad, When you became ill I missed the conversations we would have from time to time and I will surely miss them more than ever now. Rest in Peace and give Mom my love. Love You, Pat
