My family and I just learned of your dads passing. I have great memories of B.F. Always helping my mom after my dad passed away. He was a great friend to all of us and I cherish the cabinet he built for mom.

I am sorry to hear of BF's passing. He was always friendly to everyone. He was such a good friend to my mom and dad (Cecil and Eunice Medlin) over the last 20 years. He will be missed.

We are so sorry to hear of Buff’s passing. We always enjoyed seeing him at McGill Baptist. He shared many interesting stories about his time in the military. He was an avid reader and lifelong learner. He enjoyed sharing the interesting books he was reading and what he was learning. Buff was a joy to be around. He will be greatly missed! Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
Steve and Brenda McMath
