We were very saddened to hear of the passing of Buck. He was always a very special friend to our entire family. My mom and dad always considered Buck one of their closest friends and we had many family gatherings at each other's homes. I was extra fortunate to have many fond memories as Lori was one of my best friends growing up and I spent a lot of time with the Lovelace family. Buck was always joking and having fun and made me feel very welcome in their home. There will be many days of sadness for all of you now that he is gone but that is only because of all the love while he was with you. I am sure he and my dad will be sharing many laughs together now.
