Dear Moody Family,
I was so sad to hear of Boyd's passing. Boyd was kind-hearted; he was generous and he loved his entire family. Boyd's witty personality, his stories and seeing what car he was driving are some of the fond memories I have of him from when I worked at Moody's. Our most sincere and heartfelt sympathy goes out to each of you.
Love & Prayers,
Susan & Gary Johnson

I remember the first time I meet Mr. B, that's what I always called him and he didn't mind as long as I stayed and watched his favorite movies with him. I was one of his private nurses who had the pleasure of taking care of anything he needed even his beloved dog, I will truly miss him. My sincere sympathy for his family and loved ones. Mr. Boyd will be with you all in spirit. God Bless.

Sincerely Anita Martin

You must know how deeply saddened I was to hear of your loss. Boyd and I were the dearest friends. It is said that death can never take a good man away. For he is still in the hearts of the people he inspired, the legacy remains and is continuous throughout generations. I could always rely on him to call me whenever he needed help; whether with a project or some chore that he wanted me to help him with. He was a great man and I know our lives will never be the same without him. Boyd was an inspiration to me. I admired all those wonderful qualities that made him the special person that he was. One of my favorite qualities was having a caring heart that made him such a great friend. He has left us with so many wonderful memories. I will cherish them forever. He will be truly missed. May his soul find eternal rest. May the care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace needed to get through the days ahead.

My Sincere Condolences,

Juan Cabrera

It is said that when we lose a loved one here on earth, we gain an angel in heaven that watches over us. May you take comfort in knowing that now you have an angel to watch over you. I pray to the Lord to bless the Moody family with the strength to cope up with the loss. Remember Mr. Moody’s stories, and how they made you feel; by doing that, part of him will always remain with you. Words, however kind, can’t mend your heartache, but those who care for you share your grief and wish you comfort and peace of mind. Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer. I admired Boyd for his strength of character. I will continue to be inspired by the actions he took and the things he said while he was alive. He will live in my memories. I extend my most sincere condolences to you all.

Always,

Tony Cruz & Family
