    He was the kindest soul, so welcoming and caring to all he knew. I cherish our conversations about life’s challenges. He always encouraged me to keep pushing forward with school, even when it was hard. Everyday I remember being so happy to see him, even all his head shaking comments “Beau-isms”. We will all miss him so much and he will always have a place in our Walmart family. <3 Sending love and healing to your family.
