Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so sorry for your loss. As a friend of Jean I spent a lot of time in the Wollam home and know what a loving father Boyd was. I am sure he will be missed by his family and all who knew him. May the loving memories you have of your father help you through this difficult time.

Uncle Boyd never seemed to age. He always had such a sweet smile and the sparkly eyes that made you want to sit down and talk to him. Seeing him the summer of 2013 and having lunch with him is a lovely memory. I know you are missing him so very much. I know all the wonderful memories give you comfort.

I was sorry to hear of uncle Boyd's passing, but I know he's with the Lord. I'll never forget the great time we had moose and bear hunting in Alaska. I will miss his smile and his great wry sense of humor. My prayers are with all of the family.
