Buz was the best brother-in-law one could ever hope for.
No one could have done a better job of being a great husband to
my sister or a better father for his wonderful children. He became my number one hero of all time by caring for and being a strong advocate for Kay as she struggled with her prolonged illness. May God bless his children and their families.
