I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. I’m thinking of you and your family at this difficult time.
It was such a joy and honor to meet Delcie at this time in my life.she was so funny and caring. Delcie loved everyone and desired them to know her jesus as she did. Her face glowed and grinned when she spoke of her family. Delcie loved her girls and was so proud of her son. Daniel was the love of her life. The beginning of something very special. She will be truely missed as part of our bible study group. But we know shell be with us in spirit. Delcie got her miricle…a glorified body. She with jesus. She always told us to celebrate because shed be in a better place then us. Although she miss us….her heart couldnt be heavy . Only Delcie could see the good in every stage of life. We all should be so lucky.
Delcie will always leave a special impression on my life. A sister in Christ who lived her life for Christ. She would have liked to stay longer but would accept what God wanted. I love you Delcie.
Dan, Justin, Natalie, Melissa,

Our memories of Delcie go deep
And are forever etched on our hearts. I can’t imagine our kids not being with Justin Natalie and Melissa all those years we shared such deep friendship. We are deeply saddened by her passing yet we know we will reunite in the eternal when we are called home by Jesus. We are thankful she is at peace and no longer suffering the earthly battle w cancer. We send our love prayers and sympathies to all her family, Her children, Grandchildren and especially her husband Dan. We will continue to pray daily for comfort and healing as only our Lord and Savior can give. In love. Chris and Bill Kelly

My deepest condolences go to Delcie’s family members and friends. I knew Delcie Boyd as a youth growing up in Franconia… she and her family lived almost directly across the street from my family’s home. I will remember Delcie always as being sweet and friendly to me.
So surprised and sad to hear of delcies passing.
I remember meeting her at the bus stop for our kids. She was the one who led me to fix lake Baptist Church. She was such a hard worker and a blessing. My prayers go with her family, dan, Justin, Natalie and melissa on such a huge loss.
I only knew Delcie for a short time but what a blessing I feel from knowing her at all! In a recent email she had sent to our bible study I love re-reading her words of encouragement to our group: “I pray that God will help us all to view our own circumstances, not in comparison to our own frailties, but in the light of our all-powerful God!
GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME, ALL THE TIME GOD IS GOOD!
I look back and realize she was an angel on this Earth. Prayers are with her family constantly.
