To the Bouler family: I was saddened to learn of Jabo's passing. I worked with him at Trunkline in the summer of 1974, a time that seems like a century ago. He was fun guy to talk to and I always enjoyed shooting the bull with him. My prayers are with you all.Judge Percy L. Lynchard, Jr.

I've known Jabo all my life. He has been a true friend and will always be with me. Too many memories of my buddy to let go. I always admired him. I can honestly say that we never had a cross word with each other. He is someone I can never replace on my friend list. Gonna miss you Jabo. I hope you and A.J. aint doing nothing that you dont want to do. Marc Pilgrim

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Cindy, and your family, including Todd. You have been a wonderful daughter and caregiver for Jabo during this last month. I know how hard it has been on you and I know he is smiling down on you. Take some time now and get some very deserved rest for yourself....You did a good job.....Love......Ann & Bo

I am so sorry for your loss. We truly loved Jabo, he was always so good to our Scooby and never saw us without asking about Patty and Haley. He cooked us some mighty fine crawfish a number of times. My granddaughter told me this summer, that if she couldn't have Jabo's crawfish, she just didn't want any - because he fixed his with LOVE. I never saw him that I didn't get a hug, sure gonna miss those special hugs. Sending our prayers for your comfort and peace, and our HUGS to all of you.June and Mike Patterson
