Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Nora: I am so sorry to learn of Buddy’s death. I regret not having kept in contact with you and him throughout the years.
    Buddy was a great man, except when he said I was “fluffy.” 🙂 Buddy, Doug, you and I had some fun times together years ago.
    I’m praying for God’s peace, strength and comfort throughout the coming days.

  2. “Buddy”- delightful man who loved Jesus and determined to serve Him as His child. What great joy to have Buddy as part of our TVC Church for the past year. I shall miss the subtle humor of my friend. May God hold you and bless you precious Nora🙏🏽
