We are so very saddened to hear about our dear friends passing. Our friendship with Elaine and Buddy goes back many years starting at the Y. We attended many family affairs and had lots of fun in Falmouth.

We loved them both very much.

Our deepest sympathy to Pam and Nancy and their families.

They will be truly missed.

Buddy and Elaine were my next door neighbors for only a little over one year and I loved the both of them. They were so sweet with each other. Family meant everything to them beginning with their own marriage and ending with (these are Buddy's words) "the little rug rats"! He adored his daughters and talked about how beautiful they were. Most of all he adored his beautiful Elaine.
I will miss the both of them and I hope that they are together just as they will always be together in our memories.
