Plenty days have passed since the day you went away to a better place. I know you have been here in spirit, but the feeling just isn't the same. Sitting in your room on the internet in search of direction for the next step in my life and out of nowhere you show up. Unique how these things tend to happen over the years. If I could only hear your thoughts on the growth of our family that would be the most soothing. You are a great deal of my motivation today. I fight, love, cry, father, and provide all on the account of you. I know that I can't fill your shoes, but I do put forth plenty of effort to get things done the way you would. If I could just hear you tell me that you're nothing less than proud... You have done enough for me for two lifetimes and I am more than thankful for all you have done. Though your physical presence has been taken away, you are still my rock and reason today. I can't forget what I keep with me. I will continue to be an extension of your love. You are appreciated paw-paw. May God mend the hearts left broken.

This tribute was added by Shannon McClelland on 1st April 2014 "I so so SO wish you were somewhere hiding & jumped out to say "APRIL FOOLS". :-) Miss you much & love you more! Gone too soon...but...NEVER forgotten. I love you, Daddy."

Weep not for me though I am gone into that gentle night. Grieve if you will, but not for long upon my soul's sweet flight. I am at peace, my soul's at rest There is no need for tears. For with your love I was so blessed. For all those many years. There is no pain, I suffer not, The fear now all is gone. Put now these things out of your thoughts, In your memory I live on. Remember not my fight for breath Remember not the strife. Please do not dwell upon my death, But celebrate my life. We continue to love & miss you, Daddy

Our father kept a garden A garden of the heart He planted all good things That gave our lives a start He turned us to the sunshine And encouraged us to dream The seeds of what we'll be We are our father's garden We are his legacy

Not, How Did He Die, But How Did He Live? Not how did he die, but how did he live? Not what did he gain, but what did he give? These are the units to measure the worth Of a man as a man, regardless of birth. Not, what was his church, nor what was his creed? But had he befriended those really in need? Was he ever ready, with word of good cheer, To bring back a smile, to banish a tear? Not what did the sketch in the newspaper say, But how many were sorry when he passed away.

DADDY... We'll always remember that special smile, that caring heart, that warm embrace, you always gave us. You being there for Mom and us through good and bad times, no matter what. We'll always remember you Dad because they'll never be another one to replace you in our hearts, and the love we will always have for you.

As much as I do, I would never ever want you to come back to this hurtful place. You are where I want to be someday. :) We're gonna be fine, just bumps in the road at times. Love you, love you!

Two years today since you've been gone and it seems like it was only yesterday. When you left, a part of my heart went with you. You always gave the right advice and always said the right things. Oh how we need you right now. Momma truly miss her Honey and she still calls you. We all miss you!! We love you Bo!!!
Posted by Shannon McClelland on 13th February 2013
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND HAPPY VALENTINES DAY DADDY. I LOVE AND MISS YOU GREATLY!!!!!
Posted by Shannon McClelland on 13th February 2013
Please. God, forgive a silent tear A fervent wish our Dad was here There are others, yes we know But he was ours and we loved him so. Dear God, please take a message To our Father in Heaven above Tell him how much we miss him And give him all our love.
Posted by Shannon McClelland on 13th February 2013
What we'd give if we could say Hello, Dad, in the same old way To hear your voice and see your smile To sit with you and chat a while. So if you have a father Cherish him with care For you'll never know the heartache Till you see his vacant chair.
Posted by Beaunka Bean on 13th February 2013
A light from our family is gone, A voice we loved is stilled, A place is vacant in the home, which never can be filled. We have to mourn the lost of one we would've loved to keep, but God who surely loved him best finally made him sleep. After a lifetime of his love and joy, God leaves these wonderful memories to help us through our tears. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BO! We love you and we miss you!
Posted by Shannon McClelland on 30th July 2012
Hey Daddy. I just had to stop by today. Missing you tremendously!!! Oh how I wish you were somewhere around a corner waiting to jump out and say "Ah Ha...April Fool, I fooled all of yall, didn't I?!!!" It would be a horrible joke, but I would be so glad to have you back that the joke wouldn't matter. I love you so.
Posted by Beaunka Bean on 17th June 2012
Happy Father's Day Bo....we miss you!!!! You're gone but you remain in our hearts forever. I love you!!!
Posted by Beaunka Bean on 31st March 2012
Mom misses you so much. She tried on some clothes that I bought her for her birthday and she said my "Honey" would love this wouldn't he. I said yes he would. You will forever be apart of us. I love you so much Bo. Muah! Until next time.
Posted by Beaunka Bean on 31st March 2012
I can't believe that it has been 1 year since you've been gone. It feels like it was yesterday. I think about you all the time and I miss you so much. Mom had lost so much weight and I know it was because of her grieving. You know how stubborn she is and when you ask her how's she feeling, she just says: "I'm alright." She's eating again now and has put on a few pounds. I was so worried

"We little knew that morning that God was going 2 call Ur name. In life we loved U dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts 2 lose U, U did't go alone; for part of us went w U the day God called U home. U left us peaceful memories, ur love is still our guide, & though we cannot see U, Ur always by our side."

Our family chain is broken & nothing seems the same, but as God calls us 1 by 1, the chain will link again.

I always remember bring you Valentine's ballons (that you hated-LOL) and your favorites (peanuts, crackers & peanut butter, candies). Just to hear you say "WHY YOU DO THIS". :) I love you!!

Hey Daddy. I miss you. Been really hot here, glad you're not here to experience it. A couple of times driving home from work, my thoughts were to stop by the house to visit, then I remembered you're gone to a better home. I love you SO much.
Posted by Bill Pearce on 28th June 2011
I always considered you one of my very best friends as well as brother in life. You taught me a lot when I worked at the Wills Point Chronicle in the 70's. Plus you gave me a lot of good advice in life. I love you. See you in Heaven my friend..
Posted by Shannon McClelland on 19th June 2011
Hey Daddy. Just want you to know we missed you on yesterday. We had a wonderful time in your honor. All of your kids were together, chatting about you, as well as others in the community. I know you were looking down on us. We love you.

I'm missing you so much, Daddy!!! This journey withOUT you is lonely, rough. I can't hear your voice, or see your smile. It's been a lil over 2 months, but, seems like forever. I love you. Shannon
Posted by Shannon McClelland on 23rd May 2011
I miss you so much, Daddy!! I come here everyday & look/stare @ you...wishing & hoping that I could say something 2 U & U would say something back. I miss our trips 2gether to & from the Doctors offices or just sitting at the house with U.
Posted by Shannon McClelland on 2nd May 2011
Wow, time flies. You've been gone a month now. Seems like only yesterday. Daddy I sure miss you, there are SO many things I want to talk to you about. On my drive home from work, I'll say "I'm going by to check on Daddy", then reality hits!
Posted by Shannon McClelland on 24th April 2011
"Daddy we kept the tradition going-we (ALL of us) had a gr8 dinner @ the house Sunday (Easter 2011). Even though ur body wasn't there, I felt ur spirit. We miss U so, so much. Just not the same, but, I can hear U sayN "Stop crying, it ok"

WHEN GOD MADE UNCLE BO HE MADE HIM WITH A GIVING, LOVING AND CARING HEART. HE WILL FOREVER BE MISSED, HE WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS AND THOUGHTS! HE IS TRUELY IN GODS CARE!
Posted by Beaunka Bean on 21st April 2011
My eyes may be smiling, but deep inside I'm crying, if only I could have let you know how much I love you so. You were the dad I never had & to see you go makes me sad. I saw the vision of you the other night & I know that you are watching over me.
Posted by Stephona Hubbard on 20th April 2011
So many happy memories, so many loving thoughts...these and the comfort from God's Word will fill the void left when you went to Glory. I love and miss you much, Uncle Bo.

The Golden Gates Stood Open God saw you needed rest. His garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best." Rest In Peace Daddy, I love & miss you so, so much. Shannon
Posted by Shannon McClelland on 19th April 2011
"Daddy..."God saw you getting tired, a cure was not to be, He put His arms around you and whispered, "come to me." With tearful eyes we watched you suffer and slowly fade away, even though we loved you deeply, we could not make you stay."
Posted by Shannon McClelland on 19th April 2011
A heart of gold stopped beating, working hands were put to rest, God broke our heart to prove to us He only takes the best.
