    Going to miss you Buddy. We’ve been friends for a very long time. Everyone remembers how our football coaches (McKee and his meat grinders) did everything they could to break that friendship but they didn’t realize that was not possible. Going to miss seeing you around town. All were blessed have you as a friend and your family was blessed to have you as a son/father/brother/uncle. Please have a cold one for me when I meet you on the other side. Danny Mabry
