I was sorry to hear of the loss of Mr. Munson Hunter aka Mr. Bo. He was such an awesome man with a lot of humor and compassion. It was a pleasure to be able to know him during his time at Senior Options when I worked there. He had a great love for people. God has gained an angel. Rest in Peace Mr. Bo you have lived a blessed life. Praying that God will comfort his family during their time of bereavement.

My Grandfather, My Best Father, My Grand Teacher.

    Smart, Big, strong, honest, honorable, respectful, Quiet and God Loving Man. You taught me with your actions not so much with your words. You showed me the best ways of how a man stands up. You showed me that a man acts through action not talk. I watched you in many ways, a great man, a man's man. The definition of a good just man has you to help define its meaning.
     I watched you be a great Husband to Grandma Ida May. Grandma was… tough, feisty and loving. My Grandparents had very few disagreeable moments and even fewer arguments in front of me. That deep bass baritone voice could shake the house alone if my Grandfather wished. He was clearly the man of the house, strong enough to handle all aspects, but to Grandma he gave control. I watched a big tall giant of a man standing tall and still while a 90 pound woman had worked me out for something I cannot remember why. I do know I dared no raise my hands in defense though. I was at that time so long ago about 175, 5-09, a soldier's build. I would not dare even look at them with a side eye. Respect, manners, restraint was some of the many things received well from you Grandpa.
     One of the first true providers that i learned from. I never once heard Grandaddy complain. I can honestly say we never went hungry. He was blessed to be able to always provide.

This and more I thankfully know, helps contribute to my innermost confidence, my drive, it stems from watching firsthand. When he failed at something, he just started over, tried again and would not quit. This taught me that giving up is not an option.

      In my heart you will remain strong and current, In my mind, thoughts of you will gleefully crowd my memories, from my mouth stories of you will fill my children's ears, your teaching ways have successfully been passed on.

I live you… I honor you… I remember you… I love you Grandpa. Rest In Peace.

*GOD DID WELL WITH YOU AND YOU DID WELL WITH BY GOD. (A.S.N.F.)


Your Loving Protege,
Munson P. Hunter III

I felt my heart just stopped when I received the news. This was one of the greatest loves in my life. Uncle Bo to me was a friend, confidante, brother, dad and most of all kind and patience. I feel better and coping now, because I have a lot of great memories of this monumental man. He will always be in my heart. He taught me so much and loved me too unconditionally. Love always your nice Sarah Bolden.

I could go on and on about the times spent with Mr. Bo at Senior Options like when I would go shopping for bingo prizes I knew to get the soda that Mr Bo like hoping no one would win it before him. I always sit at the table with him when I call bingo trying my best to pull out the number he needed to win, lol. There were time I would find him in the exercise room on the treadmill talking on his phone to one his lady friend and boy he uses some lines on them. As you can tell I really enjoyed him and will miss him greatly. To the family, May God bless and comfort and hope that you have a peace of mind knowing that this is a home going celebration for Mr Bo after 100 years here on earth.

May it comfort you to know that Mr. Munson Hunter is resting in the arms of Jesus. He worked many years tired and weary with wisdom in Gods' vineyard so God called him to his everlasting home and God said, "Good and faithful servant, well done." May you always treasure precious memories in your heart.

The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. Psalms 90: 10
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. 2 Timothy 4:7-8
