Dear Helen and family,

I am so sorry I couldn't be there for you at this time. I didn't know Buddy was ill. Just remember all the fun we had on Grabner Drive with the kids and the street picnics with Joe, Bud and Allen Wheeler at the helm of the chowder. Thirty three years of great memories. He will be missed by many. My heart goes out to you and yours. God bless you.

We want you to know that our hearts are with you and your family in the loss of Buddy.
Losing someone that you love is devastating and we know that nothing we say would ease the family's feelings of sorrow.
I will hold in my heart the memories of Buddy from when I was a kid. Buddy was a cool guy.
Your family has our deepest sympathy.
God Bless
