    Uncle Bo,

    I will always cherish your visits back home to West Virginia to see us, including you taking me on my first motorcycle ride. You were much loved by your parents and sisters, especially my grandmother who loved having her baby boy home. I gave no doubt she was the first to greet you on the other side.
    Rest In Peace.
    Your niece
    Kelli Dolin Pratt

    Pops you were always like a dad to me and an older brother all in one. I cannot put into words how much I will miss you after having almost 50 years of knowing you. You were a great friend. Now you can see your mom and dad who I know you missed and loved. Will think of you often and watch over Janet.

    We knew each other through work for the past two decades.
    We worked next door to each other for 2 1/2 years and had lunch together almost every day. I appreciated your being there if I needed any help or had a question. You always spoke so highly of Jan and I enjoyed hearing the updates of your West Virginia home. You will missed by all of your coworkers. Warren Preston

    Sweet Bo. That’s how I remember you my dear cousin. You were a scared skinny kid when you moved close to us in Alexandria VA in the mid60s. Neither of us wanted to live there, we wanted to be home in WV. Then, I introduced you to Janet and all that changed. Love struck and has held steadfast since then. You proudly had your baby girl Karen and son Jimmy. Life has moved on. I will always remember you as Sweet Bo. I’ll see you in Heaven. Give your Mom & Dad and Ann hugs and love. They’ve missed you. Until we meet again sweet cousin.
