Sending our Love and Sympathy at this time and in the days ahead.

My prayers are with the whole family. I have hundreds of good fun memories of growing up with the cousins at Topsail Beach. We swam in the sound and encountered an alligator in the water with us, built a tree house in the scrubby trees behind the cottages, dragged a snake across the road to stop traffic, and found a sea turtle on the beach at night after she had laid her eggs. I never once felt scared and would have followed him anywhere back then. His smile and laugh always brightened the day even when we were all in trouble!

I love you and still miss you even with all the years since I last spent time with you. Rest in peace Bo!
