It was apparent that Carla was not pleased with living in Novac and made her opinions known. Jeannie May Crawford describes Carla as a "cactus flower," in that she is pretty to look at, but hard to get close to. She was never content with the ordinary life of the small town.
Carla's attitude toward the town caused distance between Boone and Manny, which continued after Carla's disappearance. She had been kidnapped by the Legion, and Boone suspected she was betrayed by one of the townsfolk. When Carla was kidnapped, Boone tracked the slaving party to Cottonwood Cove in hopes of rescuing her, only to find her being auctioned off in a camp of hundreds of Legion soldiers.
All Boone had was his rifle and the distance between them. Instead of subjecting her to the horrors of Legion slavery, he chose to take her life in a mercy killing, knowing that a rescue wasn't possible. As a result of the psychological trauma Boone endured, he has become suicidal. He has no goal, purpose, or desire in life but to slaughter legionaries until fate finally catches up to him.
When the Courier first meets him, Boone is bitterly whiling away the hours until he can find out who is responsible for the disappearance of his wife and killing them. Hardened and psychologically troubled from his time in the NCR military, Boone vacillates between being a stone-cold killer and a decent human being. Venturing out from the relative safety of Novac brings Boone into close contact with his old life until he is forced to deal with the tragic events that caused him to leave the military.
In fact, if the Courier enters the Fort with Boone, all Legion members will become immediately hostile, regardless of the one's previous standing with them.

He found that feat so amazing at age 4. I am sad that JD won't be here to show him that and much more. What a blessing JD was to me and our family. I won't be able to be with you this Saturday but I will be in thought and spirit. Heard a song today that really hit home God only cries for the living because we're the one's left to carry on.
Uncle JD is home and heaven is glad to have him home I know Grandma is. I love you all and my heart aches for this huge loss. I will always cherish the special effort he always made for me and my children at Christmas.
Something that will always be in my heart. I will see you soon. My prayers are for God to hold you all in his hands to help you through this. I feel as if a member of my own family has left us. I can't remember when I did not love J.
The only man that I thought could come close to matching my Daddy's good looks was Mr. I imagine that I first saw him when he came to pick up flowers at mamaw's florist. My sister and I both had crushes on Mr. Boone and he was so very nice to us.
I never knew anyone that had that wonderful ability to make you feel a little better at a time in your life when you could not feel anything but pain. David, you are very good but he was great. He was just so understanding.
Even though our family knew him especially well, I know he extended that same warmth and kindness to everyone that came there grieving. Each weekday morning that I have had to make that trip to Boone, the one highlight was getting to see him on that billboard, a wonderful reminder of old Ashe County and my childhood.
He certainly was there for me to lean on and to cry on his shoulder. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, Jim, whom I have not seen since high school, and David, you have already seen me through quite a bit, I think of you especially.
I know he is no longer in pain but I also know that even though your brain knows that, the heart still breaks. He was a memorable man and will be very much missed by all in Ashe County. All my thoughts and prayers. Maureena Edwards Denny.
John and Geraldine Gentry, my parents,loved J. Boone and Mrs. Boone as well, and all that he stood for. Dad a beautiful bouquet of yellow roses. We shall not forget the dignity and respect always shown to each family. My heartfelt condolences and sympathy are with you and your family as you grieve the passing of your father.
I pray the Holy Spirit will bring you comfort now and in the days to come. Your brother in Christ, George. We are so sorry for your loss. He was a great friend to each one that passed his way. We can only say "Thank you Mr.
JD Boone, for all the care you have shown to our families over the many, many years". We will miss you,. This may sound selfish, but the first memory I thought of was how caring and loving J. So many visits and when Momma was still at home, bringing her Ashe County butter and cheese curds.
Another vivid memory I have is J. May God hold all of you in his hands and may your memories comfort you and bring you peace. Love to all. My first memories of Uncle JD were when I was really little and he was really, really big! He picked me up like I was a feather. I really thought he was Superman, for a long time, and in many ways, he was! I loved to come over to North Carolina to the old house with the big front porch and play with all the cousins.
I surely did love going to Shatley Springs and eating the wonderful family style food that Uncle JD always wanted to take us to when we would come over.
I still remember, too, getting bee stung several times when helping with the tree trimming! We felt so alone there and did not have a clue as to what to do or even who to call. Uncle JD gave us all the information of what to do and how to do it. He even made a lot of calls for us. He made that difficult time for Pat who is an only child so much easier. When Daddy died, JD was there, again, helping us all.
For that, our entire family is very grateful and appreciative. We will hold each of you close in our thoughts and prayers. The death we see as final is just a door. And our physical parting does not sever our spiritual ties. We love you all! And I know I am speaking for all the family! My sister Laurie is on "hurricane evacuation" duty in Savannah, GA, and cannot attend. But she is thinking about you all and sending her thoughts and prayers for your comfort. Likewise, my brother Les, who is at Kennedy Space Center working, cannot attend, but is also sending his love and prayers.
John and Billie, Carl, Pat and I hope to be there, to tell you in person and to give you hugs and support! David, I am so sorry to hear about JD. He was always very kind to me and that I will never forget.
I terribly sorry I can't attend the services but you know to well how this business is. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family. To David and family: J. His manner has been a model for the rest of us. My sincere sympathy to you and your family. He will long be remembered for his legacy of service to the community and his family, and what he did for those of us who had the privelege of knowing him. Boone has shown true care, concern and love when my family was served by Boone Funeral Services and Ashelawn.
I attended high school with his son, Jim, and send my love and sympathy. The residents of Ashe and surrounding counties have lost a good friend and God has accepted his son into his arms.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Boone on the occasion of the death of a family member of mine Russell Lyall. As a Funeral Director myself, I tend to look at others in the profession to see how I could improve the way I care for grieving families.
I was so impressed by Mr. He represented the best of what this business is all about; it's not just a job, it is a calling. He demonstrated the highest level of care and concern I have ever seen. He certainly was a man to be admired and I am glad I had the opportunity to met him, if only briefly.
Please be assured that the Boone Family will be in my thoughts and prayers. He was truly one of a kind.
He was always so kind to our family and that will never be forgotten. David , you have mighty big footprints to follow. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Janet. David, sorry to hear about your day.
Everytime I seen him, no matter how he feel, he would smile. He will be missed by all. Know that my heart is with you all, even though my body cannot be. I am doing what my Papa Boone would want me to be, take care of Mom. So many of my memories of my life in Ashe County are connected to all of you. When I think of Papa Boone, I think of calm strength.
Wrap your arms around yourself and know that there are 2 hugs coming from Winston-Salem, one from me and one from Mom. You are in our prayers Love in Christ Marcia and Patricia Mom Lowder. I have wonderful memories of my Uncle JD. I remember how we looked forward to our Christmas tree from JD.
The tree seemed so special because it was grown by the always smiling, tall, kind uncle with the deep, calming voice and my sweet and beautiful Aunt Bertha Lou. Thank you my cousins for sharing the interesting story in the obituary about the Navy experience. What an honorable man was your father.
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I am very sorry for your loss of a loving father and a great friend to all who knew him. I am sorry I am unable to attend the services, but my thoughts and prayers are with you all. So sorry to hear about your dad's death. You are in my thoughts and prayers. We want to express our sympathy to you and the family. I am sorry that we will be out of town and unable to attend the service for you father, but you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
We cherish the memory of Mr. He truly was a gentleman that brought joy to all who knew him. Robert recalls fondly of times he helped Mr. Boone and especially the visits to his home. May God grant you comfort today and in days to follow. Keep your memories and recall them often - they will bring you much joy. Please know that our thoughts and prayer's are with you and your family at this sad, and almost unbearable time in your life from three that have already been there.
Your family has always been special. My mother was grateful for the special care she received after the sudden passing of my dad. I don't know if mother knew the new funeral home was ready but she would not have wanted it any other way. Boone was a wonderful man and he touched many lives.
It is a wonderful blessing to have someone who cares when folks are in times of deepest sorrow. Our prayers and sympathy go out to your family. My thoughts and prayers are for the family during this time. He was a Great Man and was a pleasure to have known him for many years.
I remember working for J.
