I am so sorry about hearing of Buford's passing. He was one of my favorite members at the Credit Union. Even though I have retired now, I will miss his smiling face.

So sorry to hear of Buford’s passing.
We will miss him.
I will miss his conversations about the volunteers.
We would each do our own predictions about the football team and he was always right.
Rest In Peace Buford.
I miss you and Cecile.
