It was such an honor to know you Buddy and share in your cowboy stories. You encouraged me to go to the dude ranch in Wyoming and I’m so thankful to have had that push from you. You lived life here to the fullest. I know the plains of Heaven will be ripe for lots of horse riding and beautiful scenery. Save us all a seat at the banquet table with Jesus. Until we meet again Buddy. It was such an honor to have known you! Peace and Blessings filled with the most precious love, that of our precious Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ. Until we meet again, Sara Harville
