    Loretta, Nikki, Cody and Ryan and families,
    my heart is so heavy for you all.
    Buddy was the kindness neighbors we ever had . My girls and I struggled with grief for many years after they lost their father, and
    It always cheered us up to see Buddy working in his garage or on cars, and just to see all of you as a family.
    He very unselfishly fixed our water meter one time and left the sweetest note,ending it with..”have a good day”.
    I’m so shocked and saddened, it was just this summer, he was standing in his yard and waving,and my favorite thing was to watch him fly his kite, we loved that.
    Loretta my heart goes out to you and the kids and grandkids. Praying for you all, may God wrap his arms around you like a warm blanket in the winter. We feel privileged to have known him. He will be missed. Our prayers will continue to go up for you guys on a daily basis…we understand.
