So very thankful for the family the Lord gave me. The Lord puts special people in our lives. Buddy was one of those people to me. Thankful for the times we spent together growing up. Every time I think of Buddy, a smile comes to my face. Miss him. Thank you Lord for everything you have allowed me to have. Thank you for placing me in this family.
Mama Gentry & Sissy…I know you’ve suffered a lot of sadness, but as we know and as Rev. Ralph Sexton once said, “You can’t bury a Christian!”
Buddy and I grew up together even though it has been many years since wew last saw each other his passing is still a great blow and he will be greatly missed.
I will be praying for the family that God’s glory will shine on this dark and gloomy day.
All though I haven’t seen Buddy in recent years, I know that he was a good friend. I recall spending the night with him at Sissy’s house and Sundays afternoons after church. He would come over to spend the night at our house as well and as teenagers do stay up and swim most of the night. Buddy was a good guy. Please know that you all will be in our thoughts and prayers. May God Bless you in this time of loss and may his peace and love comfort you during this time.
Sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
I’m very sorry to hear about the death of Marvin and send my deepest sympathy to the family. May God Bless you all.
I am truly so sorry to hear about Buddy. I am at a loss for words. For many years Buddy and I were like brothers. We spent a lot of time together that I will always cherish, in a very real way I have lost a part of me.
The family will be in my prayers.
Many great memories of us growing up and playing ball together throughout our school days. God Bless!
I attended school with Buddy at Edneyville and have many great memories. Your family is in my prayers.
I worked with Linda at Federal Paperboard for many years. I met Buddy soon after I met Linda. I have many fond memories of our times together. I cannot attend the service tomorrow, but I’ll be thinking and praying for the family.
