Condolence From: Gary Ritter
Condolence: Ann, I was a classmate of Bo's, Class of 1969 at Sandusky High School. Just yesterday I was talking with my old friend, Jim Hart, who told me of Bo's passing. I didn't know Bo well - I wasn't on the football team like Jim was, but at our class reunion 9 years ago, we had a service in a local church. Bo spoke and told of his faith in Christ; I also spoke in that service about the Persecuted Church. I was so glad to hear that Bo had come to the Lord after his days far away from Him. I didn't come to know Him until 2005, so I wandered a long time in the wilderness as well. Anyway, when Jim told me that Bo had died, I simply felt the Holy Spirit encouraging me to contact you with my condolences. I'm sure this has been a difficult time, but I know you must be encouraged that he is with his Lord and Savior. Jesus is coming soon, so please keep your eyes on Him. Our redemption draws near. God bless.

Condolence: Dear Rathers, Please accept my sincere condolences. As a young boy who's heroes were all Blue Streaks, it saddens me deeply to hear of Bo's passing. To hear how great a man he was does not surprise me in the least. I've said his name proudly thousands of times, and will continue to do so. I wish you peace.

Condolence: Ann, I am so sorry. David was the most positive influence in any class I've ever taught, the most willing to revise, and revise, and revise -- and his work got better,and better, and better. The biggest heart, the warmest laugh, the bravest man. He gave us so much. I'm so grateful to have known him.
