I Just found out about Bubba's passing. When I lived in Cleveland Bubba was probably the best friend i had there. I remember theSaturdays we would ride the bayou's and bogues sooting snakes and just having fun talking and riding he was a dear friend and pal. God bless and keep you.Jerry Knights

Thoughts of Bubba make you smile. There is always a memory where he was dancing with you or beside you. Where he made you laugh and instantly drew you into the fun. But there was also a time when he was strong & let you lean on him. Thank you Bubba Baby for your kind & loving heart, your free & giving spirit but mostly for your loyal unconditional friendship. You are loved beyond words & will be missed even more. Jim & Paige Riley
