  4. We shared our struggles and talked about coping. Spent good times together too telling stories and laughed plenty. We hiked, swam in creeks and reflected on all the beauty. We were connected through water. You brought me back to joy. Maybe the waves in our friendship will never cease.

  8. Beau was an exceptional human being that’ll be dearly missed. His unique insights and calm demeanor were a blessing to enjoy on our adventures traveling the world. He made friends wherever he went because his spirit was open and kind, over flowing with empathy for life’s struggles. he calmly rode a wave bigger than a house at black sanded playa hermosa in Costa Rica as I almost drowned when the first big set came thru and held me under in what seemed a giant mashing machine. My prayers and condoLenses to all that loved him. God be with you all.

    Isaiah 43:1–3 (KJV 1900): Fear not: for I have redeemed thee,
    I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
    2  When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee;
    And through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee:
    When thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned;
    Neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
    3  For I am the Lord thy God,
    The Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour:

    John 14:1–3 (KJV 1900): 14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
