Russell Louis left a message on March 17, 2022:
As I write this message my heart is so heavy! Heavy from hearing the news about the passing of my lifelong friend Bubba. He and I were both stationed at Barksdale Air Force base in Louisiana. When we discovered that we were both from Louisiana our friendship was immediate, from that time on we were inseparable. He was like the brother I never had. Not only was Bubba a great friend, but he was also the “Best Man” at my wedding, and his family, and Linda, always treated me so special, memories I will never forget. Our relationship continued through the years,’ and we never lost touch with each other. I will always keep the memory of my friend “Bubba” stored away in heart! Genell, and I prayers and love go out to Linda, Kim, and family through these trying times… -Psalms 34:18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; He rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
