Uncle Bo and Aunt Dorothy provided me with some of my happiest childhood memories after Daddy (Leroy Benoit) died. He wasn't just a hard worker and a wonderful family man, he made a big difference in the lives of a lot of people. If a neighbor or acquaintance was in need of his support and counsel, he stepped in to help. My love and sympathy to Aunt Dorothy, Charles and his family and Alvinette and her family.

It is with a sad heart that I bid farewell to Uncle Bo. It is with fond heart that I remember all the times I had in Westlake. I loved the rabbits, the garden, the wonderful food and good times with my cousins. I loved visiting and will always remember the fun and laughter. Time changes us all, time marches on. Much love, Yvonne

Dorothy & Family: Both Wayne and I have fond memories of you and Bo when we spent time with you when Vaughn was born. Bo taught me to ride a bike for the first time, I was 5 years old, and he didn't seem to mind when I crashed his fence before he taught me about brakes. All of us as kids greatly enjoyed our visits to you and playing around that large oak tree in the back. We are going to miss him. Ronnie

Dearest Uncle Bo, Thank you for brightening my childhood, it was always such a treat to visit Westlake, see the rabbits, smell the "banana" magnolia, pick pecans, and feel so loved. Thank you for sharing stories about Daddy and keeping him in your heart so that I knew him a little. You will be greatly missed. Love, Michelle
