Hello to all...(Christi) I just wanted to thank everyone that has called and sent emails. For those that do not know, my Wonderful Grandmother passed away on Monday. She was and forever will be the most amazing woman I have and will ever know. She had this amazing ability to make you feel like you were the most important person to her. She laughed at everything you said, even if you weren't that funny. (She is on Bo's list of people that think he is funny, he's not) She could tell you the best stories about her life growing up and the adversities she faced during the Depression and during her life growing up as a farmer. But most importantly every time she held your hand you always got a squeeze. I will miss her so much, but I know she loved me and I love her more than anything.
We will talk to you soon.
Christi

Christi,

Larry and I send our deepest sympathies. We feel your loss deep in our hearts as we too had wonderful grandmas with whom we were close and admired greatly. We've lost them all now and know your pain personally. Know she will ALWAYS be with you, as she was here in life, because that's the amazing part of a grandma's spirit. She's with her grandbabies where ever they are, always.

Remember her with love and joy and pass on her stories to Addie. They will become a cherished part of her memory and will teach her of times that were so different from what hers will be.

Grandma's are the BEST and we'll be sending up special prayers for your's to have a peaceful transition to the "other side" and for your family to find comfort and peace in your sorrow.

All our love,

The Pikes

Bo,
I don't know if you remember me, but my name is Shelbi Fox from Hendersonville & ASU (my brother is Adam Fox). I just found out about your cancer thru ASU Alumni letter. I want you to know I'm praying for you and your family. My husband's father was diagnosed w/ lung cancer this past Nov. I wish he could have even half of your spirit - you are an inspiration! Stay strong and props to your VERY strong wife - she sounds amazing!

You are in my thoughts & pryers!

Christi,

I am sure you got my e-mail, but I just wanted to reiterate that I am continuously praying for you, Bo, and Addi. I can't wait to see all of your smiling faces back in the office, because it seems that whenever things get hard, you still manage to keep that beautiful smile on your face. Hang in there and know that I and the FIG family are with you.

Love,
Serena

Christi,
Your enrty took me back to the days when I was little and would get a squeeze from my grandma when we would hold hands. The squeeze wasn't always the nicest when I was young and naughty. :0)
You and your family are always in our prayers.
Take care!
Love,
Catherine Glidewell
