We have so many pleasant memories of “Bo” that we will always cherish and remember. We love you - Janice, Junior, Lisa & Chris and our prayers are with you.😘

I have confidence in God’s promise at John 5:28, 29 “Do not marvel at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgement.”

Deepest sympathy and all our love,
