On November 16, 2017, at 5:30 in the afternoon, our little angel of 55 years, David (Bubba) Alan Haymon received his heavenly wings and is now joined with his dad, Huel L. Haymon, in Heaven, where they are having the grandest of reunions. Bubba was born in Houston, Texas, but for the past forty years or so, has been a resident of the Slagle community where he was known and loved by everyone. Bubba was born a special child of God and even before his birth, God knew exactly the family he would choose to love and nurture this bundle of love for his entire life here on earth. Yesterday, this nurturing came to a closure with all of his family encircling his bed and helping him to have a peaceful transition from this life here on earth to his eternal reward in heaven.
When Huel and Margie Haymon moved from Houston, Texas and started operating the Slagle Grocery in Slagle, Louisiana, Bubba and his sisters, Tammy, Bonnie, and Sandy all became a big part of the operation of the store. Bubba loved to visit the store, see all of the customers, and keep his sisters busy looking after all of the “things he could get into!” The girls all attended Simpson High School, and Bubba always attended the games with his family and loved to be a large part of the “cheering crowd”. Bubba loved to visit his grandfather, Elijah Haymon, who was confined to a wheel chair. Even though Bubba had limited verbal skills, he and Paw fully understood each other, and loved to joke and laugh together, sometimes getting both of them into trouble with Granny!
Bubba loved music and especially country music. The sadder the music, the more Bubba loved to listen to it. Before modern media, Bubba had a tape recorder that had 100’s of songs that he loved to listen to. He could push the “fast forward” or “backward” button and somehow he knew exactly when to release his thumb to the favorite song he wanted to listen to at that moment. Bubba also liked to watch Billy Graham preach on the television. He would sit and listen and when the crowds were asked to respond at the end of the sermon by coming down front, Bubba was seen often to get up from where he was sitting, and go and sit right in front of the TV, and he would cry his heart out to God as the others continued to come from the stands where Mr. Graham was preaching.
Bubba was a child of many emotions, but the one unconditional emotion that he shared so often was love. Bubba had a mom and dad that took care of him for 55 years, and three sisters that had demonstrated unconditional love to him, so he may not have been able to learn complex things in this life, but he had a never-ending source of love for anyone who was willing to allow him to enter their life. Once he entered, the receiving person was captured for a lifetime. Before his dad, Huel, passed away, his one main concern in life was that Bubba would have all of the care he needed to continue having a great life. For 55 years, his mother, Margie, has been a true example of the Bible’s depiction of a virtuous woman, who loved, cooked, and planned her entire life around the care of Bubba. Bubba loved to go riding on his side by side and often he and his caretakers were seen cruising the Slagle community. The family so much appreciates all of those caretakers who had such a special part in giving Bubba a quality of life that brought to him much happiness and contentment. Today, Bubba and his dad are having a reunion that we all would love to be able to witness!
