Frankie, I'm so glad you posted a picture of Buddie with a coffee cup. Over the 50 years I have known him and the Artrip family, my fondest memories are of Buddie and his coffee cup. We had many a good talk, some life lessons, and countless tears sharing a cup of coffee. I love those memories and so many more special times with of a very unique, loving and giving man. May you have peace in knowing that he blessed many people in his life.
