My thoughts and prayers come to you, Nancy, and to your whole family. Buck was one of our pillars of Fairfax...involved and active and caring. Hoping that the warm memories of many special shared times see you through this tough time.

We have lost another of The Greatest Generation. Buck epitomized The Greatest Generation. He loved his family, his country, and his friends. He was a gentle man with the most wonderful sense of humor. He told the best stories. We loved when Buck accompanied Nancy to events at American Realty. He always added so much to every event. My condolences to Nancy and family.
