Oh Pat! I am truly at a loss for words. You have lost a spouse and we have lost a dear friend. We all had some good times together and will never forget "Buddy", he was one of a kind and we loved him very much. Praise God, we will see him again soon and then the good times will really begin to roll. Praying for God to comfort and strengthen you from this day forward. We love you, Patsy & Dwayne
