    Randy Man, We just found out about Buddy. We are so sorry. He thought the world of Dawn and you. I know he was glad to finally see you happy. You both took great care of him. I wish I had the answers to make sense of loosing our parents, but know he is with the love of his life. Your mom will straighten him out. The memories will get us through and he sure left some. We are here if you need us. Sorry for not being there when you needed us most. xoxo Mike and Kim, Kristi, Kurtina and Harley Paul
