To the family of Bumboy Flint.
You all.have my deepest condolences. It is never easy losing a love one. I pray God will give you a peace which surpasses all understanding. May God comfort and keep you all in his tender loving care. I remember the many times my friends and I would listen to Bumboy play his guitar and sing many great songs which would get our feet a moving. One of my favorite songs he played, sang and danced to "Rockin Robin". I will always think of Bumboy whenever I hear that song
God bless the family and many friends of Bumboy. Gone but not forgotten. God Bless!!

Rommie ....never forget his singing voice...he could have been another Sam Cook...”That’s the sound of the man...working on the chain gang” Rommie lived with us for six months back in the 90’s and I consider him a true and wonderful friend...I will miss him much
