    I am so sorry. Words cannot express my sympathy right now. Marjorie is grieving. We will be there for the funeral. Love you very much Aunt Arlene and will think of you until we see you.

    Arlene, so sorry for your loss. I remember coming to your house with my Dad many times. Always loved your Chesapeake Bay retrievers and how protective they were of you. The one thing that stuck in my mind about Bucky was when he grilled steaks and how upset he got if someone asked for A-1! It’s not a good steak if you have to put that shit on it!!!! Take care of yourself and my Mom and Dad will be happy to see Bucky up in heaven.

    My heart is heavy. So many memories to cherish. I will always remember how cheerful and witty he was. Everyone should have an Uncle Buck and I’m proud to say he was mine. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
    Love always,
    Diane and Paul
