A beautiful classmate with a great attitude. Life seems to take us away from each other, but the memories are always there. You brought light and smiles to many fellow 1977 classmates as well as others in your lifetime. See you in the light.

This caught me by surprise. When l talked to Buddy few months ago Darla answered phone and we talked awhile and said she was living with Buddy and taking care of him. She never mentioned having health problems. I called couple times recently and no one answered phone. All l can say is the is in my prayers. Tommy Doty
