Mrs. Boykin and I met in 2009 at Riverside Cemetery. Her daughter and my husband had both just recently passed away. We often visited our loved ones about the same time at the cemetery therefore we usually engaged in conversations of comfort with eachother. When Mr. Boykin passed I was able to attend his funeral. Martha was indeed a lovely lady who will be cradled in God's loving arms.

May she rest in peace!
