Dear Johnson family,
I was a fraternity brother of Bo's at App State. Although Bo and I didnt keep in touch after college, he left a lasting impression on me. He was always very kind to me and seemed to always pick me out of crowd to talk to. I am certain his ability to make you feel like you were the only one in the room was felt by many. Many prayers to the family. I am deeply sorry for your loss.
Best,
Davis Hyde

this goes without saying, but the entire williams family sends our heartfelt condolences. i think in the passing of someone it should be thought of as an opportunity to celebrate their life more than an opportunity to mourn their passing and i think with bo this is particularly notable. there are few people i know that enjoyed a simple barbeque, a day on the lake, the presence of his family and friends, or a ballgame as much as bo did, and that was before he got sick. not to mention, let's be honest here, none of us were too sure that beastie (christi's highschool nickname) would ever find someone that would put up with her...gold stars to bo for that alone. but beastie, you're the best, and if we can do anything to help, please let us know. and that includes helping addi appreciate carolina and kansas basketball as much as bo did. scott and katie.

I am deeply saddened by your loss and would like to let you know the impact Bo had on our community will never be forgotten. Your strength as a mother, wife, and friend is one that I truly admire. My many thoughts and prayers go out to you and your amazing family.

Words can not express the sadness in my heart for you, Addi, and the rest of your family. This world was a better place because of Bo. He was an incredible person who touched so many lives. As we all mourn his passing, we should remember how lucky he is right now... God gave him an early invitation to join him in living in eternal peace where we all look forward to meeting again. I pray that God will comfort you and your family thru this trying time.

Heaven just got a little brighter and received a wonderful angel this morning. May you and your daughter find peace in knowing that Bo is relieved of all of his pain and suffering. What an incredible man and fighter- you should be SO proud of him for being able to finally let go.
May your life find peace and happiness as Bo looks down upon you with a big wonderful smile. Forever.

Christi - Our prayers are with you and Addi and all of your family. Bo is finally pain-free after 3 1/2years of being such a fighter but that certainly doesn't make things any easier for those he left behind. He was a wonderful, giving and generous man...and obvious upon my first meeting of him over 10 years ago. He will never be forgotten and is truly blessed to have had you fighting with him.

I didn't really know Bo personally, but through technology I felt like I really did. I'm saddened to hear of his passing, but blessed to know of his existence and impact on so many people. Although we question why he was taking from us so early, take comfort that he is free from pain in his eternal home.

Dear Addi,
I didn't know your father as much as I would have liked to have known him. He's been battling a terrible disease since we met and fight he did. Your Daddy was knocked down so many times but he still got up to continue. He went all 15 rounds.

His goal was to see his little girl make it to her first day of school.
Some may have thought that goal was too ambitious, but not your Daddy! His face lit up at the mention of your name. He loved you little girl.

He and your Mother fought this fight with class and character and always put you first. You gave them strengh.

Your Daddy may be gone, but he will never leave your side.

Much love,
Jim Carlyle

Dear Christi and Addi~
We are praying for you today! We are so sorry for you loss. We feel so privileged to have known Bo in some small way. Hold on to Jesus for as Psalm 46:1 says:
"God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble."

And Psalm 68:4-5 says: 4. "Sing to God, sing praise to his name,
extol him who rides on the clouds
his name is the LORD and rejoice before him. 5. A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,
is God in his holy dwelling."

We pray for strength and peace in this difficult time.

Love the Zummach Family

Addi, your father was the definition of the word MAN and I know that I speak for all of our fraternity brothers from ASU when I tell you how proud of Bo we all are for his fight to the end! How fitting that Bo tells 2 doctors from Duke quoting Jimmy V from State--Go Tarheels!! My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your entire family.

My heart is truly saddened to hear that we have lost "our" Bo. The memories I have of him throughout our elementary to high school years are many! He was such a fine young man with a huge heart. My prayers go out to you Christi and Addi. May God wrap his strong arms around you and hold him close to him! He was loved by many and will truly truly be missed!

Christi, I read about how you would like to compile a "file" for Addi about her daddy and I'm sure I(and many others) have lots we can contribute!

Look out heaven...here comes a great man!!!!!

BO JOHNSON...Perseverance-Courage-Kind Soul-Sweet Smile and Love. These are words that synonymous with his character. What a privilege is was to know a man of his conviction.
He was truly blessed to have a wonderful wife and life partner, a precious little daughter, unconditional love and support from parents and friends.
I will continue to pray for your strength and faith throughout this time.
With love,

I don't even know what to say.

Bo. Go with God. You are more loved than anyone can fathom, and have affected more people in your time on earth than most.

Christi- I wish I could hug you right now. I am so, so sorry.

Addi, sweet girl. There are volumes of things I could say to you, and maybe will come at a later date. I know your mom is putting everyone's words together for you to have a book about this when you're older, and I know when you read it, you will see how lucky you are to have been born to such amazing people. I am so sorry this happened to you today, and that you are not getting more time on earth with both parents. That's hard.
I already know you are a very special little girl, though, and you have the best start possible for continuing to grow into a truly great young woman. You are a mix of two profoundly beautiful people, and that will always be a source of strength for you, even when you can't physically see or touch it. Please know that. Love does go on.

My hope for you is that you never lose touch with your wonderful father, and that you recognize all the things about him that live on in you. He loves you so much, Addi, and you will be amazed as you get older how much of him is in you. People will tell you randomly how much you remind them of your father, and you may not know exactly why, but you will feel closer to him because of it. You will learn to recognize the thoughts you have that are pure Bo, and you will know he still lives on to guide you. I am so sorry, Addi. I hope you can take comfort in how many people loved him, and through that, love you.

Dear Christi and family -
I have never met you, or Bo, but I have followed his story and have been touched in a way you can't imagine. Having also lost a dear friend to lung cancer, I am so saddened to hear of your loss. Your perseverance and grace through all of this has been truly inspiring.

May your sweet Bo rest in peace and may the rest of you find the strength in the days to come and always, always cherish what you had with him.

God Bless

Bo was a great guy and always great to have around. Even with the knowledge of what was happening it's still doesnt seem right. I had not talked to Bo face to face since the 90's. But I heard he was still the same great guy. I cant begin to understand how you are feeling but stay strong and just keep the knowledge that you will see him again some day.

There is a beautiful, soft, peaceful snow falling in Hendersonville this morning. I think Bo sent it down to us, sharing a bit of the amazing world he is in now, and letting us know that he is okay and at peace, and he is sending it down as love to his family and friends. Thank you for this precious taste of Heaven Bo, I'm looking out on it thinking of you.

God's Garden Must Be Beautiful

God looked around the garden,
and found an empty space.
He looked down upon the earth,
and saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you,
and lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful
for he only takes the best.
He knew that you were weary,
and He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never,
be well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting tough,
and hills were hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids,
and whispered.
PEACE BE THINE

My prayers are with you.

I have been following your journey since right when Bo got on the donor list. I will never forget you talking about the doctors and them sounding like Charlie Brown's teacher when they told you they were going to have to do the 2nd transplant. For everything you've encountered along the way you've handled it with such grace, even today. I loved to see Bo enjoying time with Addi over the past couple years at preschool or b-day parties and always with a happy smile on his face and just delighted to see her doing her thing. I'm so sorry to hear this news, keeping you and Addi in my prayers. Love, Kristen Coupal

The love and devotion for his family was so evident - you were his rock and Addi was the true sparkle in his eye. My heart goes out to you and your entire family. My prayers will remain with you and I hope that you find compfort and peace with the ever special memories imprinted in your heart.

There are many accomplishments we all seek, often with longer lifetimes than Bo had. Bo earned eternal life and left a tremendous legacy here on earth. What else really matters?

Addi and Christi are very blessed and will continue to be strengthened by Bo.

Bo and I were scheduled to meet for breakfast before he became more sick about 6 weeks ago. I had not seen him since prior to the transplants yet we remained in touch. I wish that breakfast would have happened.

His spirit always amazed me. He was easy to love because he loved people. Addi, your Daddy was as decent a man as there has ever been.

God bless. Ryan, Dawn and Reagan Poterack

We have no words to express the deep sorry that we are feeling here in Omaha. You are all held close in our hearts and prayers.

Remember, he will be with you always.

I am so sorry for your loss. As many have mentioned, today a beautiful peaceful snow is falling all through the land (here in NJ as well), it must have been sent by Bo. Our prayers are with you, and our thanks for sharing your lives with us, it has been inspiring in endless ways. Much like Bo.

I am so sorry for your loss. Our lives were all better due to the mere fact that we could say that we had a friend named Bo Johnson. He will be missed by many and remembered by all he met. May God be with you and Addi as you continue your journey. And may Bo rest in peace and take his place beside the angels.

I can't find the words...I just had a feeling as I fly out of the snow today in DC. My heart aches. I read from the Book of Common Prayer on my flight back to Florida and thought of Bo the whole time and just read the post. We will miss him so...Paula Albertson

Christi,
It's been said before but oh so true. "A few short years of unbelievable is worth more than a lifetime of nothing special." I hope the unbelievable years you had with Bo will bring you smiles through the tears and strength in the years to come. We all thank you and Bo for opening you lives to all of us and sharing your very private journey.
Bo went to sleep last night in his home, surrounded by those who loved him and woke up in his new home in Heaven, again surrounded by those who love him. What a lucky man.
You and Addi will continue to be in our prayers.

I have been so blessed to have known Bo for the past 3 1/2 years. I started at FIG the Monday after me made the announcement that he had Stage IV Lung cancer. He was an incredible person. He never gave up, he just kept going and going!!! Christie, I never knew how you did it. You and Bo are the strongest people I've ever know. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. You and Addi are blessed with a wonderful family and lots of friends who will help you through this.
Love,

There is a beautiful soft snow falling today in upstate NY...a snow that was supposed to pass us by...I'd like to think it's Bo's final way of passing by us all on his next journey. Rest in peace my lifelong friend. You will be missed. My love to you, Christi & little Addi.

Christi, God Bless You and Addi.

You are a very strong person, and I'm sure Addi see's this in her mom. As Bo makes his new home, take comfort in knowing that he is fully restored, by God's side, and knows no pain. His spirit will always remain amongst those whom his heart touched.

May God take extra care of you and Addi.

You and Addi are in my prayers Christi -- the strength of your family and friends is a source of inspiration -- I am sure Bo and Kate are chatting -- they are our angels.

The world is a better place with the short time Bo was here. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May you find peace knowing he is no longer in pain, and that he is always going to be looking after his two beautiful angels.

Even though I never had the privilage of meeting Bo, I feel as if I knew him. Janine spoke often of your wonderful family, and the type of man Bo was. I wish I could have had the honor of meeting him. My prayers go out to your family, and the rest of the families that are feeling the pain of this loss.

Forgive my delay in posting, but I just wasn't sure what to say or that my words would ever be good enough. Bo was an incredible guy, and I was proud to know him . . . but prouder still, humbled really, by the way he, and you and Addi, fought through these last few years. I just can't find the right words or say enough about that. I know some folks only knew Bo for a few months and the lucky among us knew him for years, but each of us was the better for it and you and Addi have taken that a step further, setting a staggering example of LOVE. I'll be thinking of all of you, praying for you . . . sad that he's gone but grateful for the time we did have with him.

Christi and Family: I am so sorry for your loss. Bo was so amazing and has forever impacted me and I really feel priviledged that I had the pleasure to work for him for so many years. As I sat here this morning crying, I could just hear his voice saying dude quit crying and get to work! The best thing we can do to honor Bo is to contiune to make FIG a success and work hard just like he would have done. Thank you Bo for the many laughs, the inspiration and touching so many people. I love you. John and Elizabeth Maddox

Christi,
I am sure you are aware of this, but there has not been a day that has gone by that Bo, You and Addi have not been in my thoughts. I really dont know what to say at this time, except that Uncle Tim loves you very much and have wished I could of been there to give you a hug many times. I wish I could see you now. Distance makes life hard at times in our lives.
My love is with you And Addi......

Christi & Addi,

I am so sorry to hear about Bo. Bo was one of the nicest people I met during my time at FIG and I will always remember him for that. He was a very devoted person, but had that comedic personality. You just never knew what he was going to say, when walking by his office and he called your name. I am very glad that I had a chance to know Bo. Yoiu and Addi are in my thoughts and prayers. I know you are a very strong person and with Addi's help, you will both make it through this together.
