Many laughs were shared when Uncle Bo was around. My favorite personal connection is we are birthday buddies. He always told me I was a day older than him as my birthday came a day before his! Never mind, that I was born so many years after him!
May peace and comfort be with all of the family and friends who love and will miss him.

Bo was one of a kind- though I didn't know him long I loved him. Such a joyful and kind man. I was blessed to know him. He will be missed. Thank you for your service Bo, and thank you for the opportunity to know and serve you.

I have great memories of my Dad, Uncle Bo, Uncle Jr. And our families visiting and laughing from my childhood. Uncle Bo called my Mom, Viola Evers and made her day with his talks. Prayers to ya'll as you learn to live with this change. Uncle Bo will be remembered fondly.

No was like a father to me. We spent many nights around a camp fire on fishing trips and a lot of cold mornings on duck ponds .I have so many memories from the last fifty years. No was the best fisherman I have ever fished with. He was a great hunter also. More than any thing he was one two great men that I have known. One was my dad the other was no .I was bleat to know him.

No had a special way of saying my name and all I have to do is close my eyes and listen and I can hear him say it.
I am going to miss him so much. He was my fill-in Dad because my dad died so long ago.
Sweet sweet man πŸ’œ
