Bro. Buddy was always a man I could look up to and so could my children.  I will always cherish the memories of working and worshipping with him at S. Green.  Without a doubt he is home with his Savior, reunited with Mrs. Mary, and celebrating his faith with all others who have gone before.  As Vince Gill sang, Go Rest High, Bro. Buddy and we look forward to joining you someday.  George Emison and Family
