  1. Dear Debbie,

    Our hearts go out to you and your family. You and Buddy have always been such special friends, and we remember liking you immediately the moment we met on our Caribbean cruise on the Ruby Princess, at which time was also your honeymoon. You shared our enthusiasm about life and the love for God. Buddy and you exemplified the love of Christ through your beautiful smiles and genuine friendly demeanor. Besides the fact that you kept such great company, you’ve got that charismatic ability to make everyone like you. We feel fortunate that we became friends. Buddy’s smile and love of life will always remain with us. We could always have that blessed assurance that we will see him again one day. May the Lord continue to strengthen you and embrace you with His comforting love. Should you ever need us in any way, don’t hesitate to call.

    With Christ’s Love,
    Luis and Charibel Romo
