My condolences to Buddy's family. I was a friend and grew up in Morning Sun and the

Great youth and glad I knew him. Be comforted.

I just learned last night of Bob’s passing. Bob and I did
not have contact for a number of years and was not
aware of his health problems. We were good friends
and had some good times in the past. A lot of pleasant
and humorous memories.

I am sorry for your loss. Take care of yourself and enjoy
your grandchildren. Please tell Steve hello for me.
God Bless.
