  1. Bubba was my best friend when we were very young and lived around the corner from each other. Every day he was at my house or I was at his. I believe we are responsible for the decline in the horned toad population in Amarillo because we caught so many in the field behind Bubba’s house. So sorry to have to say goodbye. I would love to talk with George someday if he would take my call. My condolences to his family. RIP Bubba.

  2. Kindest thoughts to Bubba’s family. We will always think of him with fond memories and that unforgettable grin. May he Rest In Peace and hope that time will heal all broken hearts.
    Much Love Always,
    Karen and Raymond Bridges
