Memories Timeline


  1. Family of Buddy, I am so sorry for your loss. God be with you. I knew Buddy from the time he left for Wash. but never saw him afterwards.. Kathryne Heard Barnard, Grand Prairie, TX

  2. So long ago! Buddy was a page and lived at my folks' page boys home on New Jersey Ave in DC when I was just a little kid. He was like a big brother to me, taught me how to play baseball on the front yard lawn and oh those water gun and pea shooter fights we all had. What fun we had. Mom used to talk about how she picked him up at the train station upon his arival in DC and he was such a cute and wide eyed kid in his cowboy boots and hat. He always called my mother Mrs C (Connie Coliten) and Buddy was one of her favorites. While she was alive we all wondered what happened to the page boys when they returned to their homes. Buddy stayed in touch until some time later. We knew he had a great future ahead of him. He was a fine young man.
