Todd And Terri Jo so sorry to hear about your Dad. He was a very sweet person.
Boopie was a classmate for eight years and the kind of friend that everyone needs. I never saw him angry or complaining, even when he was going through so much illness and pain. For the last few years we had talked on the phone fairly often and he would end by saying "Let's do this again soon". I will miss him. I am praying for his family.
Todd and Terri Jo and all of the family, Very sorry to hear about Uncle Boopie's passing. For many years, Mom and Dad would keep me updated on what Uncle Boopie was up to and how he was doing. I'm going to miss those updates and seeing him when I was able to come to visit. I will always remember the times I had with Uncle Boopie. He is going to be missed by so many people that he touched. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Mr. Boopie was a remarkable man, I enjoyed seeing him daily during my summer stays with my nanny and poppa (Wayne and Vivian Shadden). He will be greatly missed by our whole family!
