Funeral services for Buddy Funderburg, 87, of Pleasant Hill, were held April 20 at San Patricio Baptist Church with the Reverends Danny Asbell and Alton Middleton officiating. Burial followed in the Cassell Cemetery.

Buddy was born on Thursday, November 26, 1931 in Grapevine, Arkansas, and passed away on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at Sabine Medical Center in Many.

No words describe someone better than Buddy Funderburg. Born in the mountains of Arkansas to an extremely poor family, Buddy learned early the importance of education, honesty, and hard work. Blessed with a God-given sense of direction, Buddy could navigate any terrain from an early age. After all “you’re not lost, you just haven’t got there yet”.

A consecration service for the new prayer labyrinth, located on the vacant lot across from the Family Life Center of the First United Methodist Church of Many, was hosted on Thursday night, April 18. The service was hosted following the Maundy Thursday services.

A labyrinth is a place to walk and pray. It is a single path that winds its way to the center and back again. Like our life journeys, it has many turns, but unlike a maze, there are no dead ends; the lone path leads, without obstruction, to the center. The path to the center reminds us that God longs to be in the very center of our lives.

Labyrinths are found in the floors of some of the oldest cathedrals in the world, dating back to 1200 A.D. As modern Christians began to long for the ancient practices, labyrinths began to appear in contemporary settings, such as gardens like the one at the Methodist Church.

Several months ago, students flocked from across Sabine Parish to try out for “The Dastardly Doctor”, a medical melodrama filled with side-splitting comedy.

According to Director Janet Elam, it was the biggest turnout since the group began just four years ago.

“We had an amazing show of talent and were fortunate to be able to cast many students in this play”, said Elam.
