    Hi Bo, you will be missed by so many. As a long ago neighbor and friend, I have fond memories of you and your family. Rest In Peace. Thoughts and Prayers to your family and friends.

    O merciful Father,
    who hast taught us in thy holy Word that thou dost not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men:
    Look with pity upon the sorrows of thy servant for whom our prayers are offered.
    Remember him, O Lord, in mercy,
    nourish his soul with patience,
    comfort him with a sense of thy goodness,
    lift up thy countenance upon him,
    and give him peace;
    through Jesus Christ our Lord.
    Amen.

    We knew Jim from bowling. We bowled on leagues with him for years. Jim was truly one of the nicest and inoffensive persons that I have ever met. Jim will be missed!
