Our deepest sympathies to the Boyle family on the death of their father John. We consider ourselves very lucky to have been his neighbor in Sun City. He was a caring, dedicated person; always fun to be with and will be truly missed. May the light of the Lord lead you through this dark time.

I've been reflecting on my fond memories of all the time spent with my Uncle John. I looked up to him when I was a kid, no pun intended, as his height always awed me. ;-) Of course, I mean I loved and admired him. I especially remember him as my Confirmation sponsor. I felt honored that he accepted my request to sponsor me, and I will always hold precious the memory of the good, warm feeling of his strong hand on my shoulder as I was being Confirmed. Sending sincere condolences with love from my family to John, Bob, Jim, Tess, and their families.
