Hello World!

Welcome to the life and chronicles of My Jersey Boys and me, B (the only girl who hangs out with them). Our original mission was to prove that not all of Jersey is obsessed with GTL. Now it's kind of become the place where we share our random thoughts, ridiculous stories, regular quote updates, and maybe a picture or video here and there. There's always something going on...

Love from,
The one and only,
B

To the king...

Hello world...

Today I lost someone I used to know. I'm having a surprisingly hard time wrapping my mind around it. Bo Pennington was our King at Alta High School. The school I attended back in Utah, before I met my boys. He touched my life profoundly because I was one of the few non-Mormon kids in my high school, and he never looked down on me, or judged me like some of the other kids would. In a school where there were over a thousand kids, just in our class, that meant the world to me. He made me believe in myself. He talked me into doing things that I wasn't sure I was brave enough to do, and for that I will always be grateful. He shared his kindness and his goodness with all of us. I always thought he would go off and become President some day, or at the very least change the world in some profound way. I don't really understand how someone so good could be taken from this world so soon. I've never been good with death or loss. Since Bo is no longer able to share his kindness with the world, I'm going to do my best to change. Maybe that is the lesson I was always supposed to have learned from him. To be a better person. To be kind and caring, and share that with the people I know and love. That is my promise to him. To give whatever I can give to others, in hopes that maybe my small acts of kindness will change the lives of others... Because you never know how much time you have on this earth.



Thank you, Bo.
I'll never forget you, friend.
B

I didn't know him very well but I was in that same graduating class and it's just nice to hear how he touched your life. You should repost this on The families guestbook on legacy.com


Thank you for the comment, and I'll consider posting it there as well. This was probably the hardest post I've had to write to date, but it makes me happy to know that people are reading it, and continue to read it. Bo was an amazing person. I've seen how many people have written to him not only on his Facebook page, but in the facebook group dedicated to him. He has touched so many lives. I'm really proud of him, and grateful that I got the chance to know him, even if it was for a short period of time.
