    I am so sad to have lost Uncle Buddy.
    He was always a very “cool” guy to me. (Only 13 years apart). He sounded so much like my daddy on the phone when we talked. One of my best memories is when my oldest daughter ran to him and grabbed his leg. She thought he was her granddaddy. And then the shock on her face when her granddaddy walked in.
    I have nothing but loving memories.
    So sorry for your loss. Prayers for you all

    We are so saddened by your loss. We moved into the neighborhood as strangers and left with a new family in Kingsland. We were welcomed into your home as if we had always been family. He has touched our hearts in ways beyond words. My girls thought of him as Papa Cloud from day one. Always with a pack of Juicy Fruit gum in his shirt pocket so to assure they would run to him first, and they did. He will be truly missed and always loved.
    The Ferland Family.
