To Wendy, Alan, and Brian, My deepest sympathies in the loss of your Mom. Such a long life...I am glad her "parting" was peaceful. I will remember her for her sense of humor and for her encouragement to me as I embarked on my nursing career. Godspeed to the last of the "old guard" on Coolidge Ave. Liane
Auntie Ev was wonderful! I have such fond memories of her and Daddy joking and poking fun at each other. She always made me feel so welcomed and loved when I came to visit with Daddy and she always made me laugh. Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May Marion Evalyn and all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace, Amen.
I REMEMBER THE WHOLE FAMILY. MARION & WALTER AS THEY PLAYED CANASTA & SAMBA AT LEAST TWICE A MONTH ROTATING BETWEEN COOLIDGE AVE AND LINDEN ROAD WITH MY MOM & DAD DOT & ART BOYCE. JUNE USED TO BABY SIT US WAY BACK WHEN. NOW THEY ARE ALL GONE. RIP BOB BOYCE SPRING TX 77379-7976
