I knew Bo all my life. I met him as a young woman and loved his love for life. I will miss him and his emails.

I never knew Bo and have missed his emails. I somehow got on his list. We must have emailed for 5 years. His forwards were so funny and enlightening. Another good conservative gone. I just decided to google him and found the sad news.

Remembering Bo will always be easy. He was a wonderful person who loved and lived life to its fullest. Many good times were shared at his house.

Chicken on the grill, dinner, a drink; friends and family always welcome.

I remember the wonderful Jaguar -watching parties at Bo's. He was always willing to play host for any away game and welcomed everyone. Bo, may you carry on in your inimitable style in heaven... You will be missed!

I am privileged and proud to have been a long-time friend of Bo's. His rise to Heaven has left an empty space in our hearts that only he could uniquely fill. A player, not a bystander, Bo fully enjoyed life while making others explore it's many wonders and opened our hearts and minds to it's joy.
"Top of the Mornin' " to you Bo and thank you giving us your wisdom, your love and many wonderful and enduring memories. God Bless.

May his family and loved ones find comfort and peace in prayer and know that God has given Bo a special place in heaven with Bo, Jr., his grandson and Tiger.
