Bill and I are so sad to hear about the loss of Buck. When I think of Buck a smile comes to my face and nothing but good thoughts come to mind. I had so much fun working with Buck back in the day at Pittman’s and Buck was part of the reason I enjoyed working there. His sense of humor was unique and he was simply one of a kind. Our condolences to you and all of your family. Much love, Roger
