Dearest Family,
My deepest condolences on everyones loss. Buck was a very, very special cousin and was always so much fun. I spent several summers running around with him and had so much fun. I learned a lot about music from him and how to drive a stick shift bug and his old truck. Buck, Carol Sue and I went swimming at a rock quarry God only knows where..... Then later card games at Irma’s . When I was in college Buck used to come to the Library with me to study. He would sit back and read a book. What fantastic times! I am again sorry for your loss. God Bless You Buck......
