Oh Bucky I met you ten years ago through your son Timothy who thought so highly of you , we loved with him a few times but most of our memories consist sitting and talking about story’s of the good old days and of course future ideas and plans he had. Frankie always loved a listening ear , tiim and I always enjoyed to do so. He spoke most about his beloved hideway in bear river and how important it was to him to keep the trees, blueberries , animals and keeping all the city folk out worryed he would loose his paradise of peace . I personally spent the last four of my birthdays in bear river with him and Tim . Just seeing him happy just to be there put a smile on a face . Then his home in the city has an abundance of memories steaming way back in the family, personally my founders memories is when Lena was born and how proud he was of her he came to the hospatial the day she was born they quickly grew special bond Bucky and Lena spending hours playing in his back yard, he really enjoyed watching her play ,smile and grow . Our lives will never be the same but the memories will last a lifetime
