I don't know if I should put this here but just read Rosie's inquiry in People to People and a comment people rarely looked there so am posting here.

I wanted to post because Bo passed away yesterday, I know many of you knew him. He was an inspiration and an icon.

RIP Bo.

Thanks for letting us know. I wondered when we hadn't heard from him, but I am sorry that he's gone. He was a straight shooter and always gave good advice.

Exercise not only lets me live, it enables me to have a life.

I'm so sorry to hear of Bo's passing. I was really missing him, as I'm sure others were too. I hope he is at peace now. Thanks judi.

I hope we'll hear from you more often judi.

Sandy I am doing ok, still fighting with my pulmo over meds. :) I am having a cancer alarm right now and waiting for testing but after having had lung cancer nothing gets me too excited. That's another gift from Bo, he shared his on-going treatment for long-standing bladder cancer and if I have the non-invasive type like he had I will be ok.

I heard from Don but accidentally deleted the forum link.

I was wondering where he was. Prayers for his family and friends. His words always brought gentleness to the board.
