Words are inadequate to express the sadness I felt upon hearing that Buddy had passed away. I am so thankful & blessed to have shared many years of friendship & memories. I will especially miss his almost daily e-mails, or "ramblings" as he sometimes called them. Many words of inspiration, knowledge, & love were exchanged & I will truly miss them! I am so happy we surprised he & Linda with a visit in October. Linda, we are with you in spirit and will be here for you always. God Bless You & all of the family and friends who are mourning the loss of an awesome man.

We love you Buddy & can't imagine how hard it is for Linda your soulmate to deal with your going on this leg of the journey, as we all will in time. Your spirit is a true inspiration to us and your memory will live in our hearts always. Linda we wrap our hearts around you with love & pray that you find comfort in the loving care of family & friends.

Oh Buddy, We so admired your adventurous spirit, always making plans to go somewhere and do something exciting. In fact, as you said in one of your wonderful emails, your "bucket list" was filling up after the Eagles concert.
You inspired us through your emails to love every minute of our lives, keep close to our loved ones and tell them how much you care about them - "another beautiful day in paradise " - mystic salt. We loved you Buddy - and will be together again!!! Linda - our prayers for comfort to you in the days to come. I cannot even imagine the pain - feel our arms around you with love. As Buddy taught us - Peace.

I was saddened to hear that Buddy had left this life. He has set sail with the "Oneness" on his S/V Windward Spirit in the heavens. Reading his "ramblings" showed me that he was able to do so many things he enjoyed. It was so apparent how close you two were, as he said, " Soul-mates". I'm hoping those good times and wonderful memories will bring you comfort in the days and months ahead. I am thinking of you in your time of grief.
