    Rest in peace dear cousin “Bebo”! Still in disbelief that you’re gone! We will always remember the entertainment you provided our family and kids (Mitch & Taylor) when we came back to visit Greenville – especially the turtle escapades, your tractors and garden, and all the shooting fun! I also remember you helping clean a lot of fish with my dad for all his fish fries – all while feeding ice pops to your dog, Pee Wee! Say hi to Grandpa Johnny and Grandma Liz! I’m sure you’ll be planting a big garden up there in heaven! You will be greatly missed! Much love, prayer, and hugs to Joni, Aunt Vern and Nancy!

    Joni, Aunt Vern, Nancy….. Deepest Sympathies.. Everyone loved “Bebo” We are all so sad and shocked, but everyone has tons of good memories as a result of Bebo! Those will never be forgotten and he will caryy on in Spirit! Even though my kids didn’t get to visit that often, they never forgot their visits to Bebo’s House. Thanks for all the hunting memories around Kinsman Rd! That 10 point was ours! 🙂 🙂 Rest in Peace and look after all the Family in Heaven! Please let me know if I can help in any way!
