I have so many memories of Buck. Buck was a good person....He had a big heart. I use to go visit them when Lois was alive and always had the best meal and most of it was out of Buck's garden. When he was able, he and Lois would work in the garden and have the best stuff and he would share it with everyone. Part of Buck died when Lois passed away because they were so close and did everything together. Buck was one that stuck to what he believed no matter what....you could not change his mind. Of course he would try to change yours. He was a kind person and will be missed. I feel that he and Lois are together in heaven and I know they are both happy to be reunited. God bless his life and I pray that God will be with the family. Rick and Doug my sympathy and my prayers are with you both and with the grandchildren. Hey Buck....you were a great brother-in-law!!! I love you! Shirley
