It has been an emotional week as I have contemplated the loss of my dear friend Buster. We met when I was in my twenties and now I am in my fifties. Many friendships rarely ever last as long, but, I have been blessed to say ours has. Through those years we have faced good times and bad and through them all we supported one another the best we could. Time and distance often were between us, but, friendship was never questioned.
To imagine a world without Buster in it seems surreal and dreamlike. We traveled the country and the world together and shared so many wonderful experiences that are some of my most cherished memories. We prayed together, we ministered together, laughed together and ate a lot of good food together. In fact, sitting around a table together, often with family and other friends we enjoyed life at its best.
It would be an impossible task if I were to try and express everything I felt about Buster. Maybe these next few lines can at least sum up enough to help others understand.
Many times he honored me by saying that I was like a brother to him. Something that I do not take lightly, because I never had an actual brother; however, I believe it helped me understand a little more about what brotherhood is. As I see it brotherhood may be biological first, but, it is also something that can come from time and experience with another. It comes from supporting and encouraging another. I believe it also comes from building trust, and loyalty with another. It is sharing forgiveness and trying to be a helping hand in restoration when needed. To me it is care for one another even when it doesn’t make sense. So, if my observations are correct then Buster truly was my “brother from another mother.”
To know he has passed to the next life leaves me a little bewildered and I will miss him. Yet, I believe we will see each other again someday. Finally, one tribute more that I would like to share is this… as he often said when we hung up the phone, I say to him now… “Love ya man!”

Sis. Marlene, Buster will be so missed. We enjoyed our time that we spent in your home. We were made to feel so welcome. I will miss our messages back and forth. He was so excited about our vision for our churches, Glad Tidings Apostolic and Elk Valley Apostolic. We pray for comfort for you and the rest of the family.
