  2. Hello Donna and family, Buddy Schumann here. Sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. May God’s peace be with you as you go through this valley. We lost my mom about 2 weeks after we saw yall at County Hospital (March 2007) and my dad passed in 2010. I think he died of a broken heart. It was a great time growing up with neighbors like your family. The pain gets easier to deal with but the hole(s) in our heatrs will never heal. Peace be with you, Buddy Schumann
