Dear Buff family,
We have already been missing Marshall who was a wonderful neighbor to us as well as a friend at church. He enjoyed laughing with our children when they were small and we walked a lot along our neighborhood road next to the Buff property. He used to tell them when the plums were ripe enough to pick along the roadway and they enjoyed that so much. He was in our church choir from the day we joined Mt. Hebron and when the choir returns to sit in their area, it will not seem right without him there. Your family has been an anchor in our community for so many years and you shall be in our thoughts and prayers. We regret we will not be able to attend the service on Sunday but we will be in remembrance of Marshall.
Jane & Kellum Allen

I used to buy vegetables from Mr. Buff, years ago. He was kinda my neighbor through the fields. I remember when his cows and once his bull got loose in the neighborhood. And I also remember when he married. He was so excited. Quite a man.

My condolences. 😢
