Expression of Sympathy Jul 17 2018 12:00 AM

Uncle Buddy and family, Our prayers are with you at this time of sorrow or happiness for Aunt Geneva. She is resting in heaven with no pain or ailments and probably telling God about the Cardinals and putting together a jigsaw puzzle for him. God probably is helping her with the puzzle. You know he has to take time out too. Smile Uncle Buddy. You took care of her with lots of love and tenderness and never thought it was too much. You need to take care of yourself now. You are my favorite uncle. I love you. My hugs, thoughts and prayers. Your niece, Donna Kay and nephew Larry Howell. Love ya!
