Life Story for James "Buddy" Matlock

We thought of you today
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday
And days before that too.

We think of you in silence
We often speak your name.
Now all we have are memories
And your picture in a frame.

Your memory is our keepsake
With which we’ll never part.
God has you in His keeping
We have you in our hearts.
