You were such an amazing man that treated so many with kindness and compassion. I always knew I could come to you when I was troubled. We had so many great adventures growing up that are absolute core memories in life. I'll miss you but you'll forever live on in the many memories you've made in all of our hearts. I've so much love for you Bobo!
