Uncle Bo, you where always my favorite Uncle. You always said I was your favorite niece. I remember when we were young you would come and take Dewayne and I go cart riding. I'm so glad i got to spend time with you. Love and miss you.

Papa..... It’s hard to share a favorite memory, they are all my favorite. I know that my heart hurts, home is lonely without you here. My kids miss you, i miss you, Joey (your favorite buddy) misses you. We don’t know what to do without you. I loved getting to watch you love my babies, make so many great memories with them. They will forever cherish those and so will I. We love you Papa and miss you more than words could ever begin to express. ❤️

John was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather as well as great grandfather. He loved his family with all he had. He was there for each one in a different way. When I say different way I mean, whatever each one needed at that time. I joked with him about how long he had been going to school. He went, then he took and picked up his children, his grandchildren, and the his great grand children. He did this with love. I told him he must be the smartest man I know as long as he had been going to school. He will be missed by many. Prayers for the family.
