    I remember last Halloween when we did trunk or treat. I was parked right next to Buck. He had a smile for each child. In between we got to chat a bit. That was when I really got to know him. He was kind and friendly and even though it was very chilly out he stuck it out until the last child came through.

    Buck was a joy to be around and to talk with! I will always remember how he would love listening to
    the kids practice piano but he said “I hate the Dozen A Day”. Which was their finger exercise book.
    Always enjoyed when you and Buck sang duets. My thoughts and prayers will be for you especially
    and also for the kids.
