My condolences and sorrow for the death of Bujo, my very best friend of all time and classmate of '54, and to his wife and family upon their sad event. I know that he is in heaven, for he professed faith in Jesus Christ. I will see him there someday. Love and affection from Joe R. Hartzog

I am so sorry to hear of Bujo's passing. My mother (Ivadenne Hatfield) will feel the loss of a family member, but even more, she has lost a friend. I will be saying prayers for Bujo and all of you for the comfort that only the dear Lord can give. Please know that you are in my thoughts, and I know he will be missed greatly.

We were very sad to hear of Wally's passing. Vanesa has shared wonderful memories about him with us. We enjoyed our conversations with him prior to and during the snowy weekend of Jordan & Vanesa's wedding and also at Vanesa's graduation. We know he will be sorely missed. His family and friends are in our thoughts and prayers now and will continue to be so during the days ahead.
