I will miss you greatly. I will always remember the times that I had with you and daddy, O. R. William's, Mr. Jones, Papa York. And the rest of the railroad crew. I can see you playing poker and messing around with all of the guys. The Coliseum in Memphis Tn. also. Our condolences goes out to all the family. Love and miss you, Little Bit.

Wow long lived Bom Bom! Never will be forgotten. He and that farm are a big part of my childhood memories. Great memories and I'm so great full to have had all those experiences in my life from riding horses to fighting off chickens for eggs and letting those dogs know who's boss! Oh this tears at my heart but I will rejoice that he now is free from this worlds bond and released back home with our father. Love you

I remember going to the farm all the time as a kid, and I remember Brianna, Hayli and I sitting at the breakfast table with BomBom eating Cheerios with brown sugar on it every morning. I remember him always having a pack of juicy fruit in his shirt pocket as well, and he always smelt of juicy fruit and tobacco. Those are memories that have always stuck with me. I wish I could’ve made it out there to see him one more time. Love y’all and miss y’all so much. RIP 💙
