What a blessing to know and meet you both, we know, God had a hand in that, we were so happy when you came to visit mommy and I. You are welcome here anytime, day or night! We are praying for you and yours.
Bo was a friend that God introduced us to thru the frailness of the flesh with the power of the Holy Spirit, thru cancer Bo and mommy had in common. At a public place for testing, God led us to witness to each other, then in our home, again, to witness to each other! What a joy to have met Joy and Bo. A bond was forged that can never be broken. I know, we will see you later Bo. And Joy, we are here for you always! We love you and are praying for you!

Bobo was such a kindhearted man. He always had a smile on his face and happiness in his heart. All of your family were so good to my grandparents Charles and Margaret Hammonds and especially to my grandfather, "Tick", when my grandmother passed away. Every time I talked to him he would mention that one of you had dropped by to visit or called to say hello. It meant so much to him and to us.The kindness he spread still lives on this world and I hope it brings you comfort knowing how many people he touched and made their day/life better.
My condolences and prayers,
Kathy Joe Hammonds

I’m so very sorry the the loss of such a fine man as Bobo was. I think I can speak for the entire Garrard County Class of 1973 when I say we we’re proud of him and the life he had. He was a good student, athlete, father, husband and Christian man. The world needs more people like him. RIP.

Bo Bo was one of the nicest, most considerate guys I have ever known. We took turns driving back and forth to high school for two years. We would stop at Green’s Grocery and get a pop and Milky Way most mornings. He excelled in sports at GCHS and Berea College. I am sorry for his family and friends.
