BOYD, Paul Douglas
November 23, 2007
If anyone asks, I have gone fishing
And left to make sure things get taken care of are my beautiful wife Lyndi and my two handsome boys Josh and Evan. My loving sisters and their caring husbands will always be standing by. I want to make sure to catch a big one for my nephews and get the bait ready for my precious niece. My dad will keep the ship afloat as my mom and I sail this boat. Old Blue Eyes will manage the details and my sister in law and her husband will keep the waters calm down there. All my aunts, uncles, cousins and friends from here to Tizzards Harbour, will feel my love in the breeze off the waters. To the greatest fisherman of all, Mackie, I've got the nets ready. Big Nan, when you're ready to come, you'd better be ready to cook. Come to remember me and support my family with more stories and the love of all we shared on Thursday, November 29, 2007 at 7:00 pm at the Pioneer Hall, 301 Jespersen Hall (West off King Street, beside City Hall) Spruce Grove, AB.
