Four Grandchildren Ahriel Allah Boykin, Cole Dewayne Boykin, Eden Serene Boykin, Ava Alyse Anderson, and host of cousins, nieces, nephews, friends, family and loved ones. We, the Boykin family, are very grateful for the love and sympathy that we have garnered from everyone, in our time of sorrow. We thank all of you for Christian support, concern. May God bless each and every one of you.
