Kim, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your father. Your grandmother was like a mother to us McHaney girls. I think of Mamie often and have lots of memories of sitting on her front porch laughing with your dad. Prayers for you and the rest of the family. Barbara McHaney Brown

Buck worked for me at NAPA Auto Parts in Altavista for years. He was a pleasure to be around. Buck was a Godly man and talked about the Bible a lot. He will be missed but he’s in a better place now.
