Ann, Annette, and family, So sorry to hear of Buddy's death. He was our neighbor "on the hill" many years ago. Buddy and Annette came to Mama's (Nora Bryan) visitation in 1999. Merle and Scoop had called me Sunday night and they told me that Buddy was sick. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless You. Love, Carolyn Taylor

I'm sorry I couldn't be there with you but will visit when I return home. I have so many great memories and all of you were so good to me growing up! I will always remember Mr. Buddy drinking his early morning coffee and often pointing out an article in the latest edition of 'Popular Mechanics'. He would inevitably say, "Now here's a handy gadget, look at this." Always the innovator, my young mind marveled at his own abilities. He was such an inspiration. You're all forever a part of me and I thank you for that. Be assured of our thoughts and prayers. Dee
