Beverly and family, We wish to express our love and prayers for you during this difficult season. Bubba and you meant so much to us especially while we were in Savannah. Although we haven't communicated frequently, you have always been in our hearts and minds. The kindness, friendship, and Christian camaraderie will be a lasting part of our memories. Our desire to see you is strong, but the timeframe and distance do not allow us to be there so we can hug and support you. However we will continue to pray for all of you as our family does also. Love, Ron and Ruth

I am greatful he will be with the Father in Heaven and be helping to prepare a place for us all. We love you ! Always.MIssy Waddell and kids

Beverly. I'm so sorry to hear of Bubba's homegoing. He became a friend and a mentor to me in '82 when we were working out together in the Calvary gym 3 days a week; he convicted me to tithe on my gross income as an example of his Christian wisdom. I know you and the children will miss him terribly and I'm sorry for your loss of his presence with you here. God bless & keep you

Ronnie Smith, Savannah, GA

Bubba was a a first class Southern gentleman, a respected builder and most of all had a Christian heart. I was very honored to have known him. He always treated me with great respect when I was peddling concrete as a young man. He will be missed. My sincerest condolences to his family.

Hugh Papy, Savannah , GA

I was sadly surprised to learn of Bubba's passing. I know his destination is heaven but that doesn't dull the pain of the loss on earth. I pray peace and comfort for the family at this time and in the days to come. God bless all of you.

Tony/Myrna Maddox, Savannah, GA

Prayers and thoughts are with Beverly and family at the home going of Bubba. Bubba is with Jesus, no doubt, he was a man of great faith. I had the honor to drink coffee with him for more than twelve years. During that time he revealed to me a heart full of love for his Lord, family, church, Country, and the Atlanta Braves. He will be missed!

Roe Porter, Savannah, GA

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Bubba Mock. We worked together many years ago and I have the deepest respect for him. What a talented and likeable person he was. May God grant you His Peace.

Delvers, Savannah, Ga

Prayers & so much love for the Mock family. So very sorry for your loss. I pray God will continue to bring you all peace during this time. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.

Leigh Ann Dailey, Savannah, GA
