I didn't know Bubba, but my heart was broken when I heard of his death. I am so sorry for your loss. I, too, lost a son at a young age in Nov. 2010 at the age of 19. I know the heartache you must be feeling. It has taken a long time to find my "happy" again. But I encourage you to know that God is with you all. He will help you through this. He did not cause this to happen. I cannot tell you why this happened or even what Bubba must have been thinking. All I know is that he is with God and my son, Colton. He will be taken care of. He is now happy and and no more sadness. May you all find the peace and comfort in these sad days. One day, you will see Bubba again, and what a great day that will be.
In His Love,

Carlos, gone but never forgotten. I'm going to miss him soooooo much, I miss his laugh, his smile, his everything. Carlos I know you are gone but I've never gotten to tell you what a good friend you were to me. I'm sorry you had to leave the world so fast and so soon but everyone from class of 2022 will never forget you and I hope you are happier where you are and I'm sorry the world is so cruel . 😭
