Sorry we could not visit with y'all during the visitation and service. We were out of town during that time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. I remember the last time I saw Buddy fishing at Clifton 2-3 years ago. David

Geraldine,
I have been an extension of this family for over 16 yrs. I have been amazed at the way his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren have flocked around him over the years. It is truly a rarity these days, but just goes to show the extent of love felt for this man. Paw Paw Bud will be greatly missed but surely never forgotten. You and he alike were so blessed to have each other over the years. As I know this will be a difficult time for you, I also know you will have great support from your family. God Bless.
