Iva, so sorry to hear about your Daddy. I know that you know that he is at peace and free of pain…He will be in Heaven looking over you until you get to Heaven to see him again.
May God give you peace and comfort at this time.
Amy and Iva, I am so so sorry to hear about BW, he has and will always have a special place in my heart. You all do. If there is anything that I can do, please don’t hesitate to call me.
Buren was a good friend of my parents Margie & Grover Davis who owned Davis Fishing Lake on Hwy 70 where Buren came and fished for many years, bringing Junior and Norma Jean Walker with him and I was with them often while growing up. My parents thought the world of him and after Daddy died in 1988 Buren often went by Mama’s house to check on her and take her to the grocery store if she needed to go. I am very sad that I did not know when he went into Aston Park Nursing Home as I would certainly have visited him often.
