Donna Mac Leod left a message on December 10, 2019:
As your birthday, December 19, approaches I remember how you would always remind me that you were 20 years older than me, and Mom was 20 years older than you. No matter how old we grew, you still called us Alpha and Omega; you still called me baby sister. Thank you for being so invested in my life and for always being my big brother who was kind, caring, and loving. Thank you for all the wonderful memories! I miss you! ? Love, Your namesake, Donna

Don Boyce left a message on September 9, 2019:
I was always proud to have been named after my uncle Don. He and my father had a close brotherly relationship though mostly separated from each other by many miles, beginning even in early childhood. They came up in hard times in the 1920’s, 30’s.... and then through the war years when they both went overseas in service to their country. Both came home to raise families and lead good, honorable lives and to leave the best possible examples to their children. RIP Uncle Don

Sending my heartfelt condolences to my cousins, Philip and Donna Mae and their families. Your Dad was such a kind, caring and compassionate man. He and my Dad, Earl, had such good times together during his visits to the East coast. I’ll miss those visits and seeing his gentle smile. Rest In Peace Uncle Don. Suzanne Quinn

Sometimes it takes a death to get to really know a friend. Don Boyce's passing was like that. We knew him and Evelyn by their faithful attendance at Central Assembly and Veterans Connection. First it was Evelyn who joined the heavenly host and then the family hardly had plans for Don in assisted living when he joined his devoted wife. Don faithfully met with the veterans for breakfast on the first Saturday of the month. And when he no longer drove, Ray Burmood was there to help--not only to the breakfast, but also to church services. It was my privilege to sit down with Don and complete a video interview of his military service. One thing I remember is that for 90 straight nights an enemy bomber dropped bombs on their air field in the Pacific. He served his country and was a friend and helper to so many. We'll miss him.
