Not sure what to say?

After a summer day of swimming, my granny would take me to "Buddy Stills" for some candy and an Icee....wonderful memories of the store and Mr. Still...

Buddy Still gave me two cents for every empty soda bottle I brought to his store for many years. He had a smile and a hello every time I came in. His sons learned the value of hard work in that store and it was always a happy atmosphere. There are a few people that I remember from growing up in Nacogdoches that define the kind of town it is, and Buddy was one of those people. He was truly a good man and his sons were very lucky to have him as a Dad.

Joe, Jill, Preston, Carson and Joe Evan, So saddened to receive the news about your wonderful dad. We know he leaves behind a legacy of raising amazing men! We love you all dearly!!!

I shall miss seeing him drive by and give a wave as he traveled back and forth on Burt Drive checking on his cattle and working on his place. My deepest sympathy to his family.

A wonderful man who raised a wonderful family and set a gentleman's example for all young men (and women) to follow. Our town was made a better place by his presence and he will be sorely missed. Sincere condolences to the Still family from the Hamrick family.

Sorry to hear about your Dad. We grew up with Jim and Frank. Everyone always went to "Still Bros Grocery".

Are prayers are with you and your family.

A couple of years back I walked up and shook Uncle Buddy's hand and said, "You're looking much better than my Dad" (his little brother) and Uncle Buddy laughed and said, "Nothing new about that! I've always looked better than Pete!". I have always loved and admired Uncle Buddy. He is a great man.

Jim: I am so terribly sad to hear about your Dad. A trip to Still Bros. was a daily event for me for much of my youth. Your dad treated young and old, and even the kid with a nickel for a tootsie roll ,as if they were his most valued customer. Your Dad, the store and you and your brothers are an indelible part of the memories of my youth. The earthly world has lost a man of true character and caring.

Joe, so sorry for your loss. I remember your Dad at the ballpark all of the time and when I was a little kid I would go into his store with a few pennies and he would tell what I could get with the few cents I had. Great man.

Prayers for your family.
