You were the most kind hearted person. When we would go places your enjoyment was sitting back watching people smile and laugh, you loved to see people have a good time. You would tell me all the time, "you are good girl", and you're always smiling and laughing. I will miss all the good times we had, our talks, text, and the funny jokes you would send me. I feel blessed to have known such a wonderful person. As the song says,"Let's don't say goodbye I hate the way it sounds so if you don't mind Let's just say for now see you when I see you, Another place, some other time, we will laugh about the old days, love you my friend. Buddy Cox My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

Uncle Buddy was a fun loving man. I remember him mostly of the summers I was there. We used to eat tomatoes and cucumbers from the garden. He used to also collect Corvette's. Also when we would all go to the river. If Papa wouldn't take us on the boat he always would. RIP you will never be forgotten. Love always.
