Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Your father was always part of our lives, from picnics at Lake Shawnee to our 4th of July get togethers at Lake Perry. And, of course, all of the ball games. He was just always there for us and he will be missed. My thoughts are with you.

I will never forget when it was freezing in Topeka and Dr. Boatwright was wintering in CA. He told his son he couldn't hear him on the phone as his air conditioner was too loud. He was always smiling and was a joy to be around. I'm sure you will miss him greatly. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

My sympathy to you Mike, Todd and Matt and your families in the loss of your father. I remember, years ago, when Paul,Shirley and I sang in the Crestview Choir and we had so much fun doing so. I am sure they are together again looking down smiling and thinking "Well done in raising our boys." I know they are proud of your wives and your children.

In Christian Love,

Dr Boatwright was my dentist, and he made my treatment fun and made me want to take care of my teeth. Mike, I have nothing but great memories of your father. Rest well, Dr Boatwright.

What a wonderful man and doctor. He put braces on three of my children and me! This was years ago, of course, but I ran into him at the drug store after 40 years as a patient and he remembered me! Also, I grew up a few houses down from his parents house on Buchanan street. He was in college, but his parents were the nicest neighbors we ever had. Patsy Patterson

I was proud to be one of Paul's many friends. He was an example to many, including me.

God is good! All the time! And all the time! God is good!

That great smile, the stories, the forever laughter he shared with so many for many years.
He and Shirley will always be a team we can't forget. From breakfast to the Jazz Workshop, we spent a lot of time in long discussions (and of course the laughter!) His love of people, and his love of the Lord brought joy to many. I couldn't really feel terribly sad when he passed, as I know that was what he wanted. To see his Lord and Savior and Shirley. He will be missed.
