Prayers for the family. I remember Buddy giving his testimony back in the early '60's at a Gospel Singing at Kilgore Baptist Church. I also listened to his radio shows on AM stations as a young person. God gave him a long life to spread the gospel.

Buddy was my neighbor and friend since 2000. I will always cherish the conversations and memories that we shared. He was a devoted man of God and never complained about his lack of sight. In my mind, he remains always happy, thankful and energetic--and never without a smile or positive word to everyone. I consider myself fortunate to have been a friend to such a good man. I will miss you! But, I know God called you Home and now you can see with new eyes all the beauty that you could not see on this earth. While my heart hurts, I know you are surrounded by music in Christ's everlasting arms of love.
