  8. Kimberly and Family,
    My prayers are with you in this difficult time of this wonderful young man’s passing into glory.
    I’ve received great comfort from this Bible verse before: Romans 8:38-39
    “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

    I pray that the Great Love of the Father of Comfort will strengthen you, help you and uphold you.

  11. My deepest condolences to Boyd’s Family And friends!
    I have watched this little guy grow up. When Boyd would walk into a room you could just feel the love and joy around him. He was always loving, kind and had a big radiant smile on his face. Aunt Syb loves you Boyd, and I am so thankful I was given the opportunity to meet and love you. I’m so thankful for the memories I have of you and the times in my life where your handsome face lit up rooms and your laughter was all around. I’m sending you hugs up to heaven as I know that’s where you are because God only takes the Best, and the best little guy is what you are. My loving thoughts are with the family as well. My soul is broken because I love you Boyd way down in my soul!

    - Aunt Syb Moran

  14. I did not know Boyd Rue Cain III but I do know his grandpa Boyd and I have the honor of working in the same building with Officer Boyd Cain I for the last several years. If he is anything like his grand father I know that he was a caring, outstanding person and that he will be greatly missed by all. Grandpa Boyd was so proud of his grandson and when he would talk about him his pride would shine through. I am so sorry for your family, my thoughts and prayers are with your entire family.
