I have so many wonderful memories of Bud and Dorothy on our Lake Buchanan vacations. Always so much fun to be around. I loved to go out with the group at night to fish just to hear Dorothy call the fish...."here, fishy, fishy---come get on my line"....it worked......sometime. And when it did, that was even more fun to watch. I will miss her, but happy she hurts no more and I know she is rejoicing with her Savior now. My prayers are with your family, Pam.

Love, Paula Radle Lightfoot
