Hello everybody, this is Bo. Thanks to everyone who has been praying for me and reading the blog. I am just trying to finish my rehab and get back to Cornelius full time. It's been a tough road, but so worth it to see Addi and Christi. I am sorry if you have called or written an email to me and I have not gotten back to you. I have read all the emails and listened to the voicemails and appreciate everyone's well wishes.

So good to read a post "penned" by your own hands. Christi has done a great job keeping us all informed. We continue to pray for your total and fast recovery. God has you and your family in His hands. We continue to enjoy Addi at school. She keeps us laughing as we never know who she will be next (Belle, Genevieve, or any other princes!) Thank you for sharing her with us.

May God bless you and Christi and Addi,
Miss Kim

Dear Bo,

It was so exciting to read your blog. It was almost like hearing your voice. I can't wait to see you. I hope maybe, if they allow you, in MAY. You and Christi need a vacation. Thanks Christi for the pictures. You all look wonderful. Tell Addi Happy Birthday from Aunt Shelly and Uncle Lou

Man it great to see you posting again. Wow I know it seemed like forever to you but it is just so amazing what modern medicine and the human spirit can do. Wow is all I can say just wow. Here is too continued forward progress now that you can do it in a more comfortable environment. Coming from someone who knows a little bit about rehab you will be amazed how quick your body comes back especially without the poison of chemo. Man I am just so happy for you guys, we all dreamed this day would get here and to see it is a bit surreal, the picture of you out and about the other day brought me to tears. Thinking of you in Lawrence, the Allens.

Hey Bo-
You all have inspired me to NO END! I'm just tearing up here-seeing a note from YOU-just wonderful! And that wife of yours...Well, one word....lets just say, DIAMONDS. BIG ONES. ;-) You keep on keeping on like you have been for so damn long-I really, really, really hope to see you someday soon-God bless you, friend! I am so proud to know you!

Lord, that Addi looks like Caroline! Its forever since Carolines been so little, I know (lets NOT do that math~Shows our AGE...)But the resemblance is sure there! Please tell Tracia hello from me too! You all, well, I am repeating myself at this point-you've just all shown what can be accomplished against all odds, when you have the true undying love of friends, family and GOD close by....

PS-I'm engaged! March 29, 2009 at Fripp Island, SC...If you're up for some GOLF and some celebratin' BRING IT. I'd be honored to have you and Christi and Addi as our guests!

Bo, How wonderful God's greatness has been. It is breathtaking to just see you are back on your blog. It has led us all through your journey. Just think now how close you are with all the people your journey has affected. For me their has been no greater inspiration, than you, Christi & Addi through all of this. To see you in the hospital a few months back and now to see you, Christi, & Addi out and about only brings tears of joy to anyone whom might have ever come in contact with yall. You all are in my thoughts and prayers daily. I can honestly say I know a man that would not give up and a woman who supported you no matter how hard it was. I am so honored. May God Bless and Keep you through the rest of life's journey. May our paths continue to cross often.

Luv & Prayers Always,

Granny Carolyn
