Bobby Wilson and Barry Pinkard ride the horse-drawn hearse which carried Buddy Harper’s body from Southside Baptist Church to a family cemetery on his property Friday morning. The hearse, owned by Pinkard, is followed by Harper’s son, Mark Harper. Also following the hearse on horseback was Harper’s brother, Johnny Harper, and Buddy Harper’s riderless horse. Harper, who was 71, died Sunday.
