Leave Condolences

To the Gish family, So sorry to hear of your loss. Buddy was a fine person. I got aquainted with him through the Cadiz Masonic Lodge which my husband Tom Major is a member also. Buddy always had something to say and was very kind to me. He always called me Ms.Connie, wanted to know how I was doing and never did I see him without a smile on his face. He will be greatly missed by a lot of people. I know your hearts are saddened at this time, but I just pray that God will wrap his arms around you and give you strength to get thru the days and weeks ahead. I know he is in a better place and is no longer in any pain or suffering. He has a new life with no pain and suffering and is feeling good. You are in my thoughts and prayers and have my deepest heartfelt sympathy. It wont be the same going to lodge functions with my husband without seeing Buddy there. With deepest heartfelt sympathy and prayers, Connie Major & Tom Major Princeton, KY.

To the family of Buddy Gish we are so sorry for your loss. Buddy was a friend of our family from my late husband Jim to our daughter Annie. He will be missed.

Rest in peace brother.

My heart is broken at the loss of my "Uncle Bud". Heaven has joined his family above earth. REJOICE at the wonderful reunion. Let my entire family remember the love he shared to all of us know, remember and feel in your hearts. I miss you to the moon! Vicky Porter, Terry Holeman, Kyrus, Logan & Taylor McLaurin
