    Remembering my precious nephew, I think back to a little
    Blond, curly headed, cute little boy with eyes that twinkled when he was excited or laughed! He was always so sweet and loving! I love you and I’ll forever miss you Bo!

      Love you,

    The time is drawing near
    For me to have to say goodbye
    I cant imagine finishing life without you
    When all I can do is cry

    How do you say goodbye to your brother
    Your very first protector and friend
    The rest of this road will be so lonely
    But I know that we will meet again

    As much as I would love to see your smile
    Hear your voice say “hey there sis”
    I know that your body was so tired
    And you just couldnt go on like this

    God gave you peaceful rest
    He removed every bit of your pain
    And though my heart cries out for you
    I know that your prayers were not in vain

    I know that your soul is more alive now
    Than it was here on this earth
    I know no matter how much I loved you
    That God loved you first

    Anthony i am blessed to call you my brother
    One of the greatest supporters and friends I’ve ever known
    And I will forever be grateful that god allowed me to be your little sister
    Until he needed to call you home.

    I love you always
    Your little sister

    Misty, I know how it feels to lose a brother. I’m so sorry. Bo was special to us all. I know how much you loved him and how very much he loved you. Bri and Nick – Your “Unc” thought the world of you two. Try to remember all the good memories. Melinda – I’m so sorry for your loss as well. I’m glad Bo found someone to share life with before he passed. Love you all. May God give you all peace and comfort in the upcoming days. He will be missed. I loved that guy!

    I don’t even know where to start…you helped shape me into the woman I am today and helped foster my relationship with the Lord. I love you step daddy! You will always be remembered for the amazing father that you were to Kim and I. Xoxo
