Mr. Boehm was a great person. My daddy and him went on many trips together for business and work for the Boehm Tractor Sales. I know those memories have been missed by both of them.
I remember Mr. Boehm of always twirling his pocket tool round and round., I will never forget it.
Mr. Buck Boehm, may you rest in peace and I'm sure Mrs. Margie was waiting with open arms. Fly high with the many angels and let the eternal light shine upon you.
