Carol’s daughter, Audrey Boyd, writes this about her mother:
My mother, Carol Boyd, is the most selfless, caring, giving, Godly, and loving woman and mother I know. She has been married for 33 years, has 3 children, and 3 grandchildren. My mother works at Headquarters Salon. She used to work Tuesday through Friday but now starts on Wednesday, so she can keep my son on Monday and Tuesdays so he doesn’t have to go to daycare. Since then she spends many of her Saturdays at work instead of with her family. Many days she goes to work at 7am and it’s not unusual for her to come home at 8pm at night. She does this for her customers who can’t come during regular hours. She also goes to elderly people’s homes to cut their hair because they have no way to get around. My mother helped with paint the town from the begenning to end and loved every minute of it! She is the first person to cook a family a meal when a loved one is sick or has passed. If someone is in need of help she cannot say no. She goes out of her way each and every day, some way some how, for someone. She takes one of her customers to her doctor appointments in Paducah once a month because she has no family. She also goes grocery shopping for her, and other elderly people. My mother NEVER treats herself. She puts her family’s needs above her wants and needs. That includes the needs of her grown children who no longer live with her. If she needs to go to the doctor for something she will put it off until she no longer can. My brother has battled with addiction for many many years and it has about broke our family, especially my mom and Dad. Surprising her with this prize package would be amazing and would go to a woman, who has given so many years to serving others, a special thanks. She runs herself constantly with no break. There is so much more I could add but this is supposed to be a short piece so I will stop here. My mother is someone I look up to and admire. Someday, I hope to be like her, a person who loves and cares about everyone, no matter who they are, and goes out of their way for others, and does it out of love.
I love you mom!
