  5. Can’t put into words what a loss it is to everyone. Uncle Doug was one of the sweetest and kindest people I’ve ever known. Unfortunately did not find out about his loss until today the 28th, otherwise my family and I would have attended his services. My sincerest apologies to the entire Boyd family. He will be in my prayers forever.
