I have so many fond memories of my friendship with Wanda in the past 35 years when we moved to Brentwood. We shared many church related activities, birthday lunches at her house, BeautiControl functions and trips to Dallas, YMCA exercise classes and playing Pennies from Heaven cards. Pete and Wanda were a blessing to all who knew them.

My best friend through high school and college and working together as teenagers at Loveman's in Nashville. One of our favorite songs we sang was "MY BUDDY" and I still know the words to it. We sang it in the car, we sang it at each other's homes.
I will miss my friend, Wanda Boyce, my buddy. Gracious, beautiful, charming lady!
The last line of the song was I miss MY BUDDY! well said

We are sorry to hear of your loss. Pete and Wanda were loved by the family of Minous and Bobbie Boyce . Bobbie had pictures of him as a young boy with her and Minous when they were dating. Please except our condolences on the loss of your mom. She will be missed.
