    As a child one of my Daddy's brothers could not pronounce Brother so he call him Bubber, well it stuck and all I ever heard when we we around his family was Uncle Bubber this, Bubber that. It was as if he never had a real name, Nolan R. Harrell.
    Daddy was 81 when he passed away last night. He gave a good fight, but at the end it was too much. I was able to get my words in and he was able to say "I love you too". So as things go and they must go no matter what we wish for this was a closing of sorts.
    All the great memories and a band of gold will keep me company with my Daddy. John

    My condolences to you and your family. Both my parents are gone now and there is not a day that goes by that I don't think about them and miss them.

    Very sorry for your loss. I sometimes look at my parents and notice, more-so than at other times, just how much they have aged the last couple of years, it's hard to realize and think of them being old. Neither Dad nor Mom killed a deer this year, they didn't go much, and Dad was really disappointed, saying that he knew that his hunting days were about over and that he just couldn't get out there after them anymore. It almost breaks my heart to hear such things.

    Anyway, I really feel for you and your family and pray that the Lord will strengthen you during this very trying time. God bless.

    I was holding my Dad's hand when he passed away in '91, also my Mom's hand in '02. Miss them a lot, but glad I was there when they died.
