Clyde Eugene Buff Junior: Funeral


Buffy, Clyde and Sara's oldest son an my mother's oldest grandchild passed away January 31, 2014.  He had a sudden heart attack.  His funeral was February 8.  It was a very somber occasion.  All of us siblings were there, but Dianna and Mark left early to catch a plane. 
Mom and us three sons

Mom and two daughter (Diana left early)
The ceremony was very nice.  Dillon and Geneve sang "Please Remember Me."  "Please Remember Me"

When all our tears have reached the sea
Part of you will live in me
Way down deep inside my heart
The days keep coming without fail
A new wind is gonna find your sail
That's where your journey starts

You'll find better love
Strong as it ever was
Deep as the river runs
Warm as the morning sun
Please remember me

Just like the waves down by the shore
We're gonna keep on coming back for more
'Cause we don't ever wanna stop
Out in this brave new world you seek
Oh the valleys and the peaks
And I can see you on the top

Remember me when you're out walkin'
When the snow falls high outside your door
Late at night when you're not sleepin'
And moonlight falls across your floor
When I can't hurt you anymore



Garrett sang "Go Rest High On the Mountain"
"Go Rest High On That Mountain"

I know your life
On earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain
You weren't afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain

[Chorus:]
Go rest high on that mountain
Son, you work on earth is done
Go to heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and Son

Oh, how we cried the day you left us
We gathered round your grave to grieve
I wish I could see the angels faces
When they hear your sweet voice sing

There was a video tribute made using the song "Forever Young."
Forever young, I wanna be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever and ever

However, this funeral was profound, and the grief and pain were profound.  Reminded me of the song from Les Miserables, 
There's a grief that can't be spoken.
There's a pain goes on and on.
Empty chairs at empty tables
Now my friends are dead and gone.
Parting and grieving is so hard.  I hope everyone can get through it.
There were other people there of course.

Clyde and Krista talked at the funeral.  Their bishop also talked, about his struggle with alcohol.  Buffy had his own problems, and seven years sobriety.  Many people took time to say how Buffy had benefited them.  Buffy was active in AA and sober riders.
