    Tina, Josh, Mark and M&M my heart goes out to all of you. Please know that every time you hear a special song or see a beautiful flower or watch a good TV show that Buddy is with you. He has his arms around you and will be there when you need him, just the way it used to be. Talk to him if you want to and always remember to send him your love when you say your prayers. RIP.

    We would have been there tonight, but Stephen didn’t have a good day and they put him in a nursing & rehab center. He is tring to get better we hope he will.
