"Well Buck, it's been two long, lonely years of missing you. It has been said that time takes away all pain. But it seems to me that time brings about more pain. However I look forward to the time when prayfully, I will get to see You, Mama, Gomez, Little Buddy, Lizzie Ree, Daddy, Granny, Dianer, Uncle John, Uncle Curt and Lloyd (JR.) again.  It will be great to see all of my love ones and friends - those who I met here on "Earth", and those that I only heard about.  Yo see Buck, I am trying to do as you told me to do.  I am also keeping you on my heart and in my heart.  Things are okay - as I think you are aware.  Thanks for all your love and your support.  I love you my brother.  Stay near me please. Your baby sister ~ Penny"

"Woodrow (and Buck)  today, at this moment, all I want to say is i love you and I always will.  You will always be by my side just as we talked about.  I hold your heart in my hand.  Your spirit lives in my heart.

I will always remember to "stay steady in the boat."  I will never get out.  "I ain't gone do it."  "I won't be able to do it!"  Thank you for being my brother and my mentor.  I will always remember every word that you spoke to me.  And I will carry them out and I will carry on.

Yes, my brother I have changed.  You told me I would.  You got the chance to see my change.  You told me that I would change even more.  I can feel these changes coming. Yes my dear brother, "A change gone come."  And I will make sure that I continue to move ahead and not look back.  

Thank you again for always being there for me as I tried to be there always for you.  I hope it was enough. Your ever constant foresight in handling your business so well was no different for this occasion, which was your ultimate transaction to prepare for your transition to be with the Lord.  Because you took care of business, it made the progress a smooth one.  We thank you Buck.

As you told me, you were prepared and that you were all right with God.  You said you had no worries and no fears. I believed you, and that made me feel a little better.  But you already know that. You told me to tell every body not to worry about you.  As I talk with each person I shall let them know that.  Or as they read this they will know.

Please remember to try and check in on me at various places and at various times as we discussed.  I pray that you are comfortable and that you are happy.  You deserve only the best.  You have earned your crown. Now my dear brother Buck, rest.

Your baby sister, Penny"

My heart shattered into a million pieces the day I got the phone call you had passed away! The worst feeling is I had been calling trying to talk to you for the past two days prior to your passing! I wish I could have just heard your voice just one of those days and you telling me not to worry God's got you!! As I sit here writing this yes the tears are flowing but, I know you are here beside me telling me everything is going to be ok your are in Gods hands now!! I found some peace in knowing that you were ok and ready for what ever God had planned for you so, with that I can smile a little!! One thing I know I will definitely miss is going to be your jokes and rhymes.... you never missed a beat!! I won't get to laugh and hear you joke with me about walking from Alabama all the way to California just to see me. Papa you may be gone physically but, you will forever live on in my heart and l will never forget our laughs and memories!! I love you with all my heart!! May you forever RIP"
