Bro. Boone I never had a chance to thank you. You was there when I hit a low point and needed help. You always reminded me that the Lord is with me through it all and because of that I was able to power through the hardships. I still have your letters. I'll always hold then close to my heart and remember you as the wonderful god-fearing man you were. You'll always be my mentor. I was so lucky to have you in my life. You never lost faith in me or the Lord.

Goodbye doesn't last forever. I'll be with you, PawPaw, and Jesus soon. Until then my friend and mentor...Thank you.
