    I've know Boyce for my intire life. He was a great friend to my family. I will always remember when we all went camping, he would break out his fiddle and play and the campers would gather around to listen. I remember him at at Christmas visiting us, with his cowboy hat and bow tie that lit up. He was a great human being, he is now with Eleanor.God bless Boyce.

    My deepest sympathy to the Wallace Family at Boyce's passing. He was a very talented Icon and will be missed by so many, not only in this community, but by all those who have known him thru the years with his musical talent. He will be greatly missed by so many.

    Boyce and my Mama, Bernice O. Tomas, were cousins. Mama and Daddy thought the world of Boyce. I always enjoyed talking with him at our family reunions. He certainly was extremely talented. Prayers for his family.
