So sorry to hear about Buddy. My husband, named Buddy as well, met him at his favorite breakfast spot... Waffle House. He was a kind man! Praying for your family.

I've known Buddy and his daughter and son-in-law for several years now. So sorry to hear of his passing. Buddy shared many stories with me over the years and I enjoyed each one. My prayers for peace, understanding, and remembrance to the family. God Bless... Rest in Peace, Buddy.
