I was so delighted to see Mr. Moore at First Baptist when he started coming. It was such a comfort to be able to see someone who had connections to my past and to my parents. The Moores would often come to our house to visit on Christmas night. He would come in the door and say, "Hey Tommy!" I can only think of two people who would ever call my dad that. Any other time, he called my dad "Mr. Greene". During one of the visits, Pam and I were playing in the bathroom. (It's what little girls do.) Pam tried to swing from the shower curtain rod and bent it. We didn't tell!

I am so sorry Floyd, Pam and Carles that I will not be able to attend Buck's service. It is my Saturday to work and it is not possible for me to get out of it. Buck was one of my all time favorite heroes and losing him is like losing a favorite uncle. He and Millie meant the world to me. I am truly sorry. God bless and keep you all.
