Where do we start so many memories of Bubba. You will always be part of the Elberon gang. I still can't believe the news you are and will be forever the nicest person I'm so glad we got to grew up together. I remember when you and my brother Eric were wrestling in his room and you put his butt threw the wall. You and Eric were very close then you and I grew close we hung out with the same crowd cruising around town in your Mustang going to Austin town dancing on teen night at the silver dollar saloon  with our friends. You will be missed Bubba love you friend and my heart and hugs go out to your mom Sabrina we love too! And your boys.
