My Uncle Buddy and I shared many precious times together, he recalling his life and I like a sponge soaking it all in. We talked about a vast array of subjects over the years, the most precious to me was of his accepting Jesus Christ as his Savior as a young boy. In the recent years he loved talking of bygone years of his youth, the simpler times as he referred to them. I will cherish those times because it seemed he got so much joy in telling his stories to me. I will miss his presence here with us, yet I rejoice for I know he is with Jesus in his eternal home.
To my Aunt Emily, cousins Mike, Julia and William, the grandsons and all the family, I pray that God will be ever present in your lives, giving you comfort and peace as only He can.
I love you,
Debbie
