    Helen, Donna, Debbie, Barbara, Tommy, Robbie and Mikie :
    For what short time I got to know “Buddy” he was such a SWEET KIND GENTLE man. I loved to sit on the deck and just listen to his stories and watch his face light up when he talked about “trucking” and all the places he had been and things he had seen.

    He will truly be missed!! This was a POEM sent to me by my BEST friend when my dad passed away. I read it often and thought I would share it with you:

    Broken Chain:

    We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In
    life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts
    to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you the day
    God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still
    our guide, and though we cannot see you, you are always by our side. Our
    family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us
    one by one, the chain will link again.
