Joni

You do not know me. I knew Boyd for a short time between in 1984-1985 when he worked for E&E. We sat on a joint task force for a site in the Buffalo area.

Today Boyd popped in my head. I have meant to look him up for years. So I took a few moments and discovered to my dismay that he passed.

In the short time we worked together he demonstrated humor, persistence, friendship, and wisdom. These were characteristic that I needed to see at the time.

He has resided in my fondest thoughts many times over the years. He will continue to reside there.

Blessings

Steve Chatman
