    May the road rise to meet you.

    May the wind be always at your back.

    May the sun shine warm upon your face.

    May the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

    May the Lord hold you in the palm of His hand.

    You are gone from our sight
    But remain in our hearts.

    You are gone from us for only a little while
    Until we meet again at the end of our last mile.

    My thoughts and prayers are with y’all. Bo.
