"You know this old world is full of singers
But just a few are chosen
To tear your heart out when they sing
Imagine life without them. . .

"No, there will never be another. . .

"Who's gonna give (his) heart and soul
To get to me and you?
Lord I wonder, who's gonna fill (his) shoes?

"Much too soon he left this world. . ."

Lord, I do wonder, who’s gonna fill Buddy's shoes? He did so much to hold the family (including all of us cousins) together after his parents died. Big shoes to fill, yes.

I am so sorry for your loss and I know that it is never easy to lose a loved one. May you find comfort in God’s promise found in Revelation 21:4 where he says “he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” This verse has always given me some peace, but especially when I experienced loss. Hopefully it can do the same for your family.
