Once in a lifetime if you are lucky you meet or know a phenomenal man like the one my cousin Martha married. Besides being a wonderful husband, a caregiver to his mother-in-law and giving her a place to live in his and Martha’s home. He is also an amazing father and grandfather who played with his grandson, Logan since he was a baby. Most of Logan’s learning disabilities seem dimly in the past. Buddy and my cousin Martha (Logan’s Grandmother) who he calls Mimi are credited with a large part of his improvement with their kindness and love.
This unbelievable man who we are so lucky to have in our family circle is 85 (Eighty-Five) years old and still operates his insurance agency in Winter Haven Florida. He works every day, attends conferences, meetings, and still mows his yard, shops and cooks on occasion. He is 13 years older than my cousin Martha, yet he takes care of her when she is ill. However, he mainly just spoils her because he loves her so, and she worships the ground he walks on every day.
|Martha and Buddy Logan|
In all the years of knowing him—I have never seen him mad. He is very intelligent and speaks in a soft voice. He played Santa Claus for many years—dressing like the jolly old guy and going to community events to spread happiness and cheer. And, I believe this year was the first time he did not play Santa. He recently lost his mother-in-law, Martha’s mother, my aunt; and this was the first Christmas without her. Buddies loved my aunt and gave her the respect, love and devotion of a son. My Aunt Dora loved him and sang his praises every chance she got to us. My aunt was blessed by having her daughter and son-in-law to care for her up and to the end of her life.
I know his crown is waiting in Heaven; filled with royal jewels epitomizing all his virtuousness deeds here on earth. I greatly doubt that I will ever know another man like William (Buddy) Logan in my lifetime.
My cousin Martha is a blessed woman to have him as her husband. And, she will agree that she is extremely fortunate.
