DOUGHERTY, Iowa – Farmers from around north Iowa came together this week to help a family in need.
Terry Boyle, who had a life-long love for farming, died Sept. 1 at the age of 69.
With corn and beans needing to be harvested, around 20-25 farmers from the area showed up to finish the job this week.
Carol Boyle, Terry’s wife, felt her husband’s presence Wednesday with the sun shining on the farm fields of north Iowa.
“This year, there he is,” Carol Boyle said, pointing toward the sun.
This wasn’t the first time a group of farmers came together to help the Boyle family.
In 2006, Terry had a heart valve replacement and a group of farmers came together to help with the job then.
“That year, he was here to watch with me,” Carol Boyle said.
Twelve years later with different circumstances, local farmers were there again when the job needed to be done.
