May God bless the entire Boring family is my prayer. Hilda Farr, April 17, 2018 Dr. Billy Boring Sr. truly blessed my life and that of my wife Enza. Visiting the office the first time and seeing the portrait of Jesus advising the doctor, I knew he must be a special man of God. In addition to being spirit filled, kind and considerate, Dr. Boring Sr. was extremely knowledgeable and always willing to share his knowledge with you. In over 20 years no matter how ill I was, I would feel better just from spending time with him. He always took time to talk to you as a person, not just as a patient. Such a rare trait in the world of medicine today. Beneath his folksy manner was a man full of intellect combined with a wealth of experience and compassion for humanity. God gave the world a wonderful person in Dr. Boring Sr. and now Heaven has gained a saint. St. Peter didn't just open the pearly gates for him, he had a bright neon sign above the gates saying "Welcome Home Dr. Billy Boring Sr.". Our prayers for comfort and strength are with the all the Boring family and with those who were fortunate enough to work with him.

Rocky Mann, April 14, 2018 I am so sad to hear this, Dr. Boring wa an amazing man. When my sister married his son Mark, the whole Boring family became more than just my sister's in-laws. They became very close to us too. The Borings had our side of the family over for holidays and special occasions, most of these times myself and my husband somehow always ended up in the office getting a flu shot. No way would Dr. Boring or Luan let us go without it lol. Sweetest family ever. I am so blessed to be able to say I knew him and his family, I feel truly blessed to have these memories. My heart goes out to the family. I am so sorry for your loss.
