First, I want to thank you for giving me your son. He is the Best husband and father that I could ever ask for, in good times and bad. I will forever be grateful to you for this. You will forever be living as long as Doug walks this earth. He gets his looks and the way he thinks from you. Life brings us many hardships, but with each one there is always good to follow. Doug will always love you and appreciate all that you have done for him in his upbringing. Thank you for all the family Holiday meals that you always loved to do for us! No one will ever make a bone in ham like you! Finally, I would like for you to know that even though we may not have seen each other in the last couple years much or talked, I will always be grateful for you. Please know that I will always love your son through sickness and in health and as long as I have air to breath. Rest easy in Heaven❤️🙏🏻

Buster will be missed by many, I have known him for many years as I grow up with his older sons Doug and Brian. He was a joy to be around, always made sure the boys did what they were told rather they liked it or not. RIP Buster, I will always remember you. Love always Teryl
