My Dear Buck, Once again, Here I am, saying thanks to God for arranging such an odd encounter as the one we had. I Chilean teenager and an American family from southwest Louisiana. How could that happen? Well, but it did. And we became family. And we still live as one. And no matter the distance and the time that has gone through, we still love and care for each other as a family does. I keep in my heart the memories of Buck singing, talking, dancing, driving, smoking a cigarette, asking if I wanted to eat, joking around with that "Ricardo-Buckardo-Ramon" thing... It makes me laugh even today! God bless you Buck and keep you safe and happy in Heaven. You deserve that and more. Your Chilean son, Buck-ardo (Ricardo)
