Do you care about the fan only setting to work and to you have A/C? If you don't use it, or don't have A/c it is much simpler to wire.
If you do use the fan only setting and want to use it in the winter, you will not be able to let the water always circulate through the heat exchanger.

To wire up with the fan option disabled, run a jumper wire from the original thermostat RH terminal to the RH in the 2nd thermostat. If both thermostats have C used then run a jumper between those terminals on both thermostats.
Then remove the wire from the G terminal and add a piece of wire to it and run that to the W in the new thermostat.

If you do want to use the fan only setting but only in the summer, you can leave the wire on the G terminal and run a jumper wire from it to the W on the 2nd thermostat. You will probably have to shut off the breaker to the A/C in the winter to keep it from running.

If you want to keep the fan only option and not have to turn off the a/c you will need to wire in a relay.

If you could post a picture of the original thermostat with the cover off (so we can see the wires) and a picture of the wiring in the air handler then we could give more accurate instructions.
I would usually add a relay, but you might not have to as RSI said.

I will get some pics tonight when i get home
As for the fan only option  i dont use that

If the boiler water is not up to heat and the stat calls for heat will the fan just run untill the backup heat stat calls for heat to fire the backup source 
 I have neen heating with wood for about 7yrs with a indoor unit and i will set my propane  furnace  at 60 just incase  but it never runs so i feel i may not even need the propane furnace  but it will be nice to have as back up

You can also use an aquastat. If boiler temp drops then the furnace runs as normal instead of having to wait for the house temp to drop

All the more incentive to not let it go out.

I set em at 140 usually, above that just the fan, below that furnace runs as normal, you could go lower than that if desired.

Now that I see what you have, I can write more simple instructions.
1: Add another wire into the R terminal that will reach the R in the new thermostat.
2: Remove wire from G and run that wire to W in new thermostat. (probably need to extend to reach)

That is it.

New thermostat will need to be battery powered like the one in the picture. If it is not, it will have a C terminal that will need a wire all the way to the furnace. If you end up needing that, I would check to make sure there aren't spares in the cable that aren't used.

 You have a blue wire that is not being used, at least in the pick on the furnace end, and is probably in the wall behind the face of existing Tstat. I would suggest putting in a relay and powering it with the w on the new stat. The existing thermostat is probably using the G to power the fan in AC mode. Adding a aquastat would allow you to denergize the W on the new stat when the boiler temp drops and potentially the  gas kicks in.

This is all starting to make sense
So when the boiler stat calls for her and there is no heat there to blow will the blower keep running till the back up stat calls for heat

I want to set me boiler  at 74
And my back up heat to 60
My house holds heat pretty good  so it could take  hours before the backup is needed
