My deepest sympathies to the Boyer family. When I heard that Aggie had passed I was not surprised... she had to be with her beloved Bernie.

I got to know Aggie through cards. Five years ago when I returned home the game was on every week. A little food, a lot of talk and poker. Soon I joined them! I would make lunch and dessert provide rides to and fro to keep the game going...Those days and memories are so special to me. To see friends of many years enjoying each other into their 90’s was a wonderful gift they gave me! I had the joy of listening to story after story shared around the table of lives well lived!

May the memories of your mom and grandmother bring you peace. Aggie is Home.

My very first memory of Mrs. Boyer was as a parent volunteer in my 2nd grade classroom at Madill School during one of my first years of teaching. We had large classes and we were encouraged to have parent volunteers come into our rooms. Mrs. Boyer always arrived looking so pretty and with a warm smile on her face. She taught my students French! We practiced the phrases she taught us and always looked forward to her next visit. Little did I know at the time that she had several other children besides her daughter Brenda in my class! Such a lovely lady...
Years later we have gotten to know many of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. John and I send our sincere sympathy and condolences to the entire Boyer family.
