    Pastor Ray Faircloth Sr says:
    I have many wonderful Memories of Nancy and the entire Boswell family. They were and have been family to me through the years. I pray great comfort from the Holy Spirit as the family processes: though Nancy is absent from the body, She is now present with the LORD, Plus present with her family members that awaited her arrival. What a Heavenly Thought!
