    I lost a friend today

    My friend of almost 20 years died today at the age of 78. He was a Korean war vet and had some stories to tell. He also played guitar for the better part of his life. Buzz was one of those guys that you could listen and learn from all day long. I am not one for emotions, but this has hit a little hard. Please do me a favor and send prayers for peace in his family. Thanks..

    P.S. here is a short vid....

    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......

    Done. He sounds like a great guy. His guitar playing sounds as if he took lessons from Chet Atkins.

    Prayers sent Harryball,


    P.S.

    I got a feeling in my heart, that knowing people like him, makes us better as a person........

    May God rest your soul Buzz.

    It's always tough to lose a good friend. Words usually fail me at times like this. God Bless you and your pal HB.

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your good friend. Rest In Peace Buzz.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
