Walter Louis "Bo" Dyches
June 28, 2018
He taught me so much, he was like a second father to me. He meant so much to me because I could talk to him about everything and he wouldn’t judge me . I love you and will miss you. We spent everyday together laughing at everything and anything. It was the good old days, I know after I had my child I didn’t see you enough and I’m sorry. I wish I would have, say hello to daddy and uncle ray.
