Lots of memories flood our minds as we get ready to say our final goodbye to our loved ones that have earned their wings. This is 1 man that has truly earned his. One memory I have is hearing " Buddy " say hey girl what are you doing, when I would be going in to Wal Mart. Even after him and Barbara moved he still come sit in front of the store here. Buddy will be missed by so many people but welcomed with open arms in heaven by my Granny and his sister. My heart goes out to everyone who was blessed to have been in his life.
