I was real sorry to hear about Bubba. We became friends when I was a senior in high school. He had one of the fastest cars I’ve ever seen. We used to drag race on a straight stretch of road near Greshamville. He’d always give me a huge head start, but would end up passing me every single time like I was sitting still! There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about those good old days. I hope fond memories of Bubba will help bring you comfort. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Sincerely, Ed
