I'm so terribly sorry for your loss.
I didn't know you personally Merle, but I do know daughter Audra and grandson Jimmy. I know you were a proud father and grandfather to Superman Jimmy and I have no doubt you'll be keeping an eye on everyone from your place in the sky. Rest in peace friend. At least you are at peace now xxxx

So many great memories!! Always had a story to tell! Marlene, will we ever forget the "world's largest man" story?! Wasn't funny at the time, but the re-telling seemed to get funnier every time they told it! And the times those "parts" runs would turn into hours? Poor Uncle Bud always took the blame for those, and, probably rightly so!! Then the time he had to eat the tequila worm!
You all must have some great memories and I hope we can get together soon and share them!!
We love you, Uncle Bud!!!
We pray that Aunt Marlene, Audra, Brandon, Jimmie Ray and the entire family can find strength and comfort in these memories and in the fact that he is no longer in pain and is whole and happy!
Until we meet again, we love you Uncle Bud!

Audra, Jimmie, and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I felt like I knew him from what Audra would say about him on Facebook. I wish I could do more. Sending my love and hugs. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dad, I miss you so much. You were always there for me and I appreciate it more than you will ever know. You always made me laugh and I loved your stories, no matter how many times you repeated them. I hope you have found peace. I know you have, I feel it. You're free now Dad. Watch over us. I love you. Sissy xoxo
