Thank you very much for adding my information to your Boyd family blog. I noticed today that I didn't include Darl's wife Colleen (one of my grandma's sons). Also Frank Swaney died in 2008. I don't know how difficult and time consuming it is to add this info, but if you have time, I would appreciate it.
Thank you very much!!!
