  1. So sorry for your loss. I remember Boney and Boyd and their smiles. They were a loving couple who would help anyone. The parties that Danny’s mom and dad had were the best memories of good time, good company, and the kind of love one has for their neighbors. Boyd was alot quieter than Bonnie but he would just sit there and laugh. Going to miss him alot and Bonnie I have missed also. They were one of a kind, can’t find those kind of people anymore. Love and prayers

  4. 5/26/2016 PM..Surfing the internet and typing in "Sallisaw local news", I became aware of my Uncle Sonny’s passing away! I remember his "always smile" and his guitar and "Hello, I’m Johnny Cash"! and away he would sing, "I hear a train a comin’" "Miss him"?…. that is stating it mildly! A person can’t "undo" the "if only I"…" If I could just hear his voice and that guitar accompanied with that smile"……………. Memories of music, his guitar and a smile of an Uncle, which I will sorely miss but, will cherish the memories of all the good times, which are priceless, to me! "I hear a train a comin", it’s comin" around the bend………" My personal apology, to the family, for not attending the memorial service. Due to the lack of knowledge, of his passing, via cell phone or internet communication from a family member or acquaintance, I regret not being in attendance. As always, thoughts and prayers, Paul/mOSA
