Buddy was an important part of my childhood. Along with Willie, Dorothy and my brother Dan, we "lived" at Til Taylor Park every summer. Great memories...he will be missed.

I was so sorry to hear of Jimmie's passing, he was always one of my favorite people to see on my dental hygiene schedule. I always looked forward to his kind and optimistic energy, and admired him for his unabashed love for his wife and family. My heartfelt condolences go out to Judith and Julie.
