To Ms. Jackie and Family of Mr. Lawrence "Larry" Boyce. It is with great sadness that I submit this note of sympathy. Bro. Boyce was such a wonderful soul and he will truly be missed by all that knew him. Phillips Temple CME Church was greatly blessed in having Bro. Boyce and your family as members of our congregation for so many wonderful years. Bro. Boyce truly blessed us as a member of the Sunday School and Bible Study classes at Phillips. Please know that the Christian Education Department is praying for all of you during this difficult time. May your fond memories sustain and keep you in the days, weeks, months and years to come.
