Steve, Irene, and Amy. What a bittersweet time. Uncle Buddy had the most special way of touching my heart. I
always felt blessed to have him as my uncle when I was a little kid. I remember thinking, everybody else should be
so lucky. He meant everything to me and Linda. When our dad left, yours made his heart known to us. He treated
us like we were his own. My heart aches because I did not get to come up and see him after we all reconnected.
Im thankful he had you all to take such good care of him. He was so proud of each one of you and he didnt have a
problem letting his feelings be known. I will be praying for you all... and my heart will be there with you. Love to
you all, Kim, Robert, and family
