Dear Jean and Family,
Sincere condolences on the loss of Buck. May fond memories sustain you thru your loss. Buck was a going concern and always in such a great mood whenever I saw him and we gave each other the gears. He was either Uncle Buck or Woody to me. I'm so glad I saw you and we had a chat. You are in my thoughts. Hang in there. Sherry

I worked with Buck at Thorhild Co-Op and even when he was the grumpy old man I adored him. He made us laugh with his stories and antics. Buck, you will be missed. My condolences to all his family and friends. Sandi
