  7. Buddy,
    I thank God that I was blessed to have such a special person in my life as you. I came into this world knowing you as an uncle, but as I am writing this I can only say that you were much more than that, instead a friend that is irreplaceable and I will never forget. Growing up around you and seeing your never fading youthful joy and will to live life was a blessing. Those memories will always remain with me for the rest of my life. Having you here made me a better person. I thank you, and I am comforted knowing that you are in heaven smiling down on us. Till God calls me home with you JPD, you will be missed. Go rest high on that mountain big guy.

  8. Buddy,

    I feel like I’m living in an awful nightmare right now. God had blessed us with you and your smiling face. You were truly an angel on earth. Even though everyone knows you as my uncle I feel as if I have lost a big brother. I used to love how you would pick on me at the dinner table and call me “Punk.” And sit on the front porch trying to guess what car will come next. You will always be my Buddy, and my angel. God has gained a very handsome, sweet angel and I’m looking forward to seeing you again one day and catching up on the good times. I’ll love you forever and always.

  9. to aunt Margaret and cousins I am so sorry about Johnny Paul .I can only say he is no longer hurting. I still remember calling and he would get the phone and we would talk forever only we knew what was being said to each other I will always be ‘pete’ to him. sitting on the porch and people driving bye blowing and waving at him I don’t think anyone in OXR and New Hope Didn’t know him. I know he is now with the angels in a perfect place. Aunt Margaret it is so hard to let him go and I know how you are hurting but I think Ryan met him and they can be together until it is our turn to join them again And be with our sons. God had a plan for Johnny Paul and he new it was time to get him . So everyone please remember the happy times and all of the laughs that he had with all of you. And to know that God has him safe in his arms. Johnny Paul I will always love you. You will always be in my heart your cousin Shirley”pete” Dant

  10. I only got to spend time with you buddy when I came to see grandma.I know aunt Margaret took the best care in the world for you. May God keep you in his arms .May aunt Margaret find peace in Gods love. And knowing that you are at ease now no more pain. Love your cousin Sharon Hinds”smiley”

  12. My brother Budrow, I know your at home with Jesus and your Dad, flipping quarters with the Angels, and probably winning like always. I know it’s got to be great walking and talking with Dad. Not every family is as blessed as we have been, having an Angel right here on earth. Thanks Budrow for having me as a brother not just a brother in law, and thanks for being such an inspiration and a symbol of strength to all that knew you. Say hey to John and my Mom and Dad for me.By the way you were right, John Deere really is best, and ROLL TIDE ROLL.Catch you later, old RC.
