    I am sadden to read of the homegoing of Buford, who we always referred to as God’s angel on assignment to our father, Richard McLee. He was truly God sent and was Daddy’s roomate at Evergreen. Buford looked out for Daddy and was his mouth piece when he couldn’t articulate, so he would tell us those noteworthy events of the day to ensure that Daddy was receiving the care he needed or that he didn’t eat. We were grateful for this. He was a child of God and we talked about the goodness of the Lord. I will never forget when Daddy was on a feeding tube and Buford had a sub on his table, preparing to eat. Buford should not have left the room because when he came back the sub, meatball at that, was gone, yes Daddy, had devoured it. You know what that meant, it was God’s way of telling us to remove the feeding tube. Yes, we thank God for Buford and we thank God that we were able to visit him about a month ago. To the family, you all have my prayers and we know that God will strengthen you with each passing day.

    As a very young man, 17 to 22 years old as I remember, Buford, Dave Ramsey and I had a lot of fun times together going to the local county fairs and the carnivals. I remember Buford fondly as a friendly nice guy who really was sincere in his appreciation for even the smallest of findnesses. Though I’ve been away from the area since finishing college, I’ve never forgotten Buford, as he was a positive memory in my life.
