JAMES BUZZY PRICE
We are here to memorialize a son, brother, husband, father, step-father, grandmother, uncle and friend . buzzy kept the seriousness of his last battle with his sickness low key and quiet.
He knew that this last battle was going to take his life, so it is miraculous that he had time to prepare himself . the week before he passed away was momentous. Buzzy was baptized by his son gary and took on the name of the lord jesus christ. his wife betty said that he spent much of his time praying after he was baptised.
the word of God says in Psa 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints?
The death of this man is precious because it has brought together friends family saints and sinners for fellowship
The death of this man is precious because it will inevitably cause all of us to consider our readiness to go out into eternity.
While death rejoices because it has once again issued its terrible sting and
the grave exults in victory someone here today can repent, be baptized and be filled with the Holy Ghost. Someone here right now will begin to feel the move and drawing of the Holy Spirit.
To us who remain we do not want to see any of those we love to struggle, for their bodies to break down and for them to pass. Paul wrote to the phillipian saints that to die is gain. For any saint that has passed from this earthly realm and has passed on to glory land they have received something far better than a miraculous healing, they have passed from death to the perfect life. In that city where the lamb is the light

pain no more misunderstanding no more sleepless nights no more hard
times no more financial worries etc. .. it sounds like a place we ought to prepare our selves for.
“So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the
body we are absent from the Lord...(8) We are confident, yes, well pleased
rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.” (2 Cor.
You see death is not death if you have repented of your sins, been baptized
in the name of Jesus, and filled with the Holy Ghost . It is merely a change
of place, a change of state, a transfer from one realm to another.
Death is not death, if it kills no part of us, except that which hindered us
from perfect life.
Death is not death, if it raises us from darkness to light, from weakness to
Death is not death, if it perfects our faith by sight, and let’s us behold Him
in whom we have believed.
Death is not death, if it rids us of doubt and fear, of sickness and disease,
of sorrow and sadness.
Death is not death; for Christ has conquered death, for Himself, and for
those who trust in Him.
2 Cor. 5:1, “For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed,
we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the
heavens.” (NKJV) Isn’t marvelous that Paul reminds us that this body is
