    You will surely be missed Uncle Bubba. Will miss seeing you at Grammys when I visit. I am comforted by knowing you were welcomed into our loving God's arms and to see loved ones once again. May you Rest In Peace. Many prayers for your dear family.

    We will miss you dearly Uncle Bubba. Our “coffee and Cheerio” visits won’t be the same without you. We’ll miss the many conversations about the Cowboys, the Astros, hunting and what was on the menu for the week. Love you Bubba.
