    First of all, I offer my sincere condolences for your loss of my friend "Bo". I have great memories of times we spent together. For example, sitting together at his Mom's kitchen table, eating fried apple pies until we were both ready to bust. There are many other memories as well. A big love hug goes out to Linda and the boys. I cover you all with the love of God and His peace that surpasses all understanding, that will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus; Philippians 4:7. He will keep you in perfect peace, because you trust in Him. Isaiah 26:3. Amen.
