HOK: Our little community has suffered another loss. Many of you may remember Buddy Hammond.
Sheree Hammond: "This is Buddy's wife, Sheree Hammond. I am not sure who to contact, but Bud has left to make music in a place where he will never know pain again. I am not very good with his phone, but I will try to be here for anyone who needs closure. Please feel free to call on me. He was my companion in every way. My family will never be the same, but will forever have him with us.
I am sorry for the world's lose. We were lucky to be in his life. Please listen to his music. I will try to post some special moments. Thank you all for being smart enough to know him. One love."
HOK: "I sat at the OV Jam last night listening to the great players and I felt blessed and sad at once. Hearing about Buddy hit me hard. He and Sherree were some of the first folks we met when we moved here 19 years ago. Buddy played bass for Big Dick and she worked at Lorelei with Scott. We are so fortunate to live here with so much amazing talent. But I'm telling you that band up in the sky just keeps getting better and better. RIP Buddy and peace to Sherree and family." --Suzi Youngberg
