Steve and Family,
So very sorry to read of your loss. I met your Dad about 15 years ago at Elder-Beerman and spoke to him often while he was shopping. Always a smile. Again deepest sympathies.

Susie, Chris, Sharon ... So sorry to hear of Buddy passing. Always looked forward to seeing him on Sunday mornings and when he came by our house with ice cream from the DQ. He and I were the only two members of the "Buddy Club" at church. His cheerfulness and good will will be missed by all. I know this is a terrible time for you, but I know t is a comfort knowing where he is gone to. God will take care of Buddy and he will bless you all

I am saddened to hear that my brother and friend has passed. Buddy, as I knew him, was my big brother growing up with him and his parents on a farm in Fountain City, and later the Hoosier Pete gas station in Lynn. This was the first seven years of my life and I was a handful. Buddy was a good brother and one that I liked to follow around...maybe a little too much for him at a young age.Some of my most fond memories was with him, Fern, and Bill, growing up. I am going to miss you. I was blessed to have seen and visited with you last year(2018) before you passed. Buddy, you are in good hands now with our Lord. You will always be a part of me and forever missed. Will see you again on my next journey.
