Joshua Boren was "nice and very polite." Kelly Boren was more outgoing, a very "upbeat, positive person who never talked bad about anyone, Shawn Johnston said.
"She would do anything for anybody," he said, adding that Kelly Boren was a "very good mother to her kids, always attentive to her kids." On Thursday, Kelly Boren posted a collage of photos of her beaming, tow-headed children taken in 2010.

A candlelight vigil for the Boren family is scheduled for Saturday night at 7 p.m. at Gold’s Gym in Spanish Fork,
Haley, whose nickname was "Bug," and Jaden were "fun-loving, normal kids," Shawn Johnston said.
Whatever Kelly Boren did, "she would do it 100 percent," Karim Johnston said, and was a very trusting, loving and affectionate friend who was always complimenting others and making them feel good about themselves.
All of their get-togethers and every conversation ended with an exchange of "I love you’s," Karim Johnston said.
The Borens moved into their home, located in a newer, picturesque subdivision adjacent to Spanish Fork High School, about four years ago. Marie King had lived with her daughter and son-in-law for about a year, police said.
Adams said investigators believe the last time Joshua Boren had been heard from was in a 4:30 p.m. Thursday telephone call, but the chief declined to specify either the recipient of the call or the nature of the conversation.
Adams said there had been no calls or complaints to police from the home while the family had lived there. Nearby neighbors told police they did not hear gunshots or any other sounds of trouble coming from the home on Thursday night. The bodies were turned over to the Utah State Medical Examiner’s Office for autopsies and an official determination on causes of death.
The Spanish Fork deaths occurred just days after another Utah murder-suicide that left three people dead.
Kyler Ramsdell-Oliva, 32, fatally shot her two daughters, 13-year-old Kenadee Oliva and 7-year-old Isabella Oliva, on Tuesday evening before killing herself at their home in Syracuse, police said. The shootings happened a day after Ramsdell-Oliva’s fiance moved out of the house, authorities said.
