Dear Frankie and Family,
I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Buddy. My condolences to you and your family. Although we haven't seen each other in such a long time, the memories of the last family reunion we had are still vivid ones and it was great to reminisce. You brought us all scarves from Texas to wear like the Texans.
May all of the memories you have shared with Buddy help you and your family through this difficult time. I know Charlotte, Marg, John and now Buddy are having their own family reunion in Heaven and living it up.
God Bless you and yours.
Hugs and Love,
Bernice Finnegan (Bill, Aaron and Jennifer)Strother
Charlotte's Daughter
