Over the years, I have met many people from the Boscobel area who all speak highly of Everett and all the Lathams. That is certainly a wonderful tribute.
My sincere condolences are extended to the entire Latham Family.
I have good memories of Bobby and Mary from the Sag City School.

Everett and the whole Latham family will always have an important place in my life. Everett was the kind of person you wanted to live down the road from you, serve on church councils, solve community problems or share a family picnic. He will be missed. Thoughts and prayers to the family and may his spirit live on.

My thoughts and prayers include all of you as you say good bye for a while to Everett. Every time I went by Birchwood Farm I would remember my great uncle Harold Ray Tuffley. Everett followed Uncle Harold in the art of farming. Everett was devoted to caring for his family, the land and living a life that would honor the Lord, our Creator, just like my Uncle. I bet they are chatting right now about the best farming practices. May God’s blessings and strength be yours, Latham family, in the days ahead.
