    Uncle Boyd will be missed. So many great memories, but days at the lake are the most vivid. What a great time in our lives, riding in the boat, watching him ski, and spending time at the lake with everyone. Love and prayers to Lana, Carter, Shelby and Aunt Phyllis.

    I knew Boyd since he was 9 years old and hung out at Lewis “Tubby” Lindley’s stables, on the east side of Thayer. Condolences to Phyllis, Lana, Shelby and Carter.
