Over the past several years, we've had to say goodbye to so many people that we love and it doesn't get any easier.
Our family lost Gina and now we've lost our Bo...who was like our brother. I'm thankful for the time our families spent together!! We love all of you!!

I will certainly miss our constant critiquing of our Redlegs. I will miss going back and forth with obscure references to athletes of the past. Thanks for being yourself, always, nothing made up or fake. Genuine. You will be missed by all that knew you.

I’m not sure I can put in to words just how much you all have meant to me over the years. Bo will forever occupy a piece of my heart and I am so blessed to have been his friend. His quick witted sense of humor, his sarcasm, his unwavering love for his family and his huge heart will be sorely missed.

Thanks for the love, the laughter the memories and for making me feel like I had someone in my corner forever.


Love you kid!
