Nono Boren...I too was very young, and can just remember times visiting my cousins Rick and Todd way back when we all lived in the Fort Lauderdale area. My prayers go out to the entire family and know that even from apart all these years, that I am with you in your loss. With love to our parents, and grandparents.

My time with Uncle Nono was brief back in the 60's and I was very young at the time but I do remember his exuberance for life and always wanting to be such the "Happy" entertainer. I recall a yacht club in S.Florida that he was such a part of and I recall his love to be on stage. I remember outfits and costumes, and many happy and funny times.After reading the other entries I see he touched many lives over the years...I'm not surprised..
Our thoughts go out to the entire family

Hi Lou,
I just saw Nono's name in the paper. All of my wonderful thoughts of him and prayers are with him and you. Believe it or not the plant garden he gave me so many years ago is still alive, a few less plants but... I will rememeber him always and his smile even during those tough times. He was the life of our Stroke Group and always kept me on my toes!!!!!. Do take care and hope you are doing well. Judy Walters, (Stuart, Florida)

Lou, I just heard about Nono's passing, and though it made me want to cry, it also had me laughing, thinking about all the fun & crazy times we all had over the years. He got me my first sales job, and I was so glad he got to dance at my wedding ( even if he had a long wait) The memories are wonderful. My thoughts are with you. Carla Eby-Corrigan

So many memories, so many good times. I'll always remember him dancing on the table at the Hofbrau House in Munich. Our entire family will remember him always as a fun-loving, wonderful man.

A Prayer For My Uncle Nono
Dear God, the soul which you gave him was pure. You created it. You shaped it into being. And you breathed life into it. You guarded it while he lived among us. You have decided to take him from us and bring him to you to rest in peace. We thank you God for all the days he lived among us and blessed our lives with his energy and love. Praised are you Creator of all life. Divine one of all souls. You who returns souls to the departed.
Thank you God, for your will be done.
Peace and Love

This is a beautiful commemoration of Uncle Nono...You and Susan and Jenn are in my thoughts and prayers, along with Aunt Lou, who was a wonderful wife and caregiver to your Dad...I hope you find strength and comfort in the wonderful memories you have of him and with him. Uncle Nono was so good to my dad, Joe, his brother...and to my Mom...and I have such nice memories with the visits to New York and Florida and Pennsylvania. I found a great photo of Uncle Nono and Dad when they were teenagers, playing at the beach with their friends and having fun... And your dad really was the life of the party...He loved to entertain and see his family and friends happy and having fun, too. Uncle Nono was a very beloved man by all his family and friends and he sure was strong and courageous.. I know you will miss him very much...We all will...

Aunt Lou, Ricky and Todd,
What a beautiful tribute! You captured him, his smile, his beaming eyes and his love of his family. He was a blessing in all our lives. He passed with dignity and on his own terms- he's my hero.
My love to you all, Caryn

Lou, all your family, and dear friends,
I share with you the grief you are going through at this time. Nono was certainly a special man -- a gentleman, caring, witty, funny, thoughtful, and always a smile on his face. He was all that and more even when he would be in pain. My sincere condolences go out to you. He certainly is in a better place livin it up with those that went before him! Much love to all and God bless.

Lou, Glenda, Mike, and family,

Nono was the embodiment of "grace under pressure," always smiling despite whatever pain he was experiencing. His outgoing nature and sharp wit will also be missed. When we first began attending Rich Fork, Nono befriended Ed, my husband, which is a kindness we'll always remember. Thank you Lord for the positive influence of Nono Boren on this earth.

He was one of my few kindreds.
Love, N

Ric, my condolences and heart go out to you and your family. Knowing what you are going through since I lost my dad only 4 weeks ago I know the emotions you are feeling. Since our dad's were so ill, we know that they are in a better place with no more pain or discomfort. I pray for your strength and comfort in your memories at this difficult time.

Dear Nono,
You raised a wonderful son who has a beautiful wife and daughter with a heart of gold that we have known for 32 years. I know that you are looking down from heaven with that big proud smile of yours. Over the years we had the pleasure of meeting you, getting to know you and now will miss you. And you always looked so dapper in your hats!

Peace be with you and your family.

I never got to meet your dad, but I can tell you he is a handsome guy and looks like he would be the life of the party.
So sorry to hear of his passing. Let us know if we can do anything for you.
