    Sad to see this...brought back a memory of my parents...Pat and Betty Hogan taking us to the ranch in Winnie for a bar-b-q when I was a little girl. I thought it was the coolest place in the world. My best memory was the wagon wheel furniture. My folks loved your dad. .Prayers for your entire family.

    Bo sold his antique store in Winnie to me and my friend, Maurine Gray. He was such a great guy. Enjoyed the business and personal side of him. He was professional, fair, fun and pleasant. Please know you have my deepest sympathy.
