So sorry to hear of Mr Davison's passing. Sending my condolences to the entire Davison family. I will always remember him at our Little League games & always being around in the neighborhood. Even as a kid I remember him always being there to help anyone out. Whether it was fixing someone's car or helping them work on their house. He was always there to help.

Buddy was his nickname, given to him by my husband Ted, as he could not pronounce Floyd. So the rest of his life, he was always called Buddy. Trips to Florida were not completed unless we visited he and wife Ruth.

I am regretful that I never met you but you raised a son that is admired for his honesty, integrity and love for people. Thank you for that and I can only imagine that you were the same. I pray that God wraps his arms around this family and gives them the peace that only you can give. Buck, we love you more than you'll ever know!

My friend, Buck, and to the entire Davidson family. My prayer for you during this season of grief is for you to feel just a little bit of peace in your hearts. May you all stick together and feel the love of Jesus as HIS angels deliver you the undeniable love as they wrap you in hugs so tightly that you feel their presence. May GOD bless all of you.
