Terri, Paula, Doug and Denny,

Just read of Grandpa's passing in the Daily Press and wanted to send you my deepest sympathy. Think of you often when I pull out of Greenbrier Drive and look over at "your house".

To Buster's family,
We are so sorry to hear of Buster's passing. We have so many great memories of him and Florence. They were the best neighbors ever, and another set of "grandparents" to Dan and Krissy. We have missed him
terribly since he moved. We regret that we didn't get to see him more during these past few years. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you and we will always treasure our memories of Buster and Florence.

I have so many memories of the adventures we had (camping, fishing, motorcycling, sled riding, mountain pie making) and the stories u told of ur younger days in Caledonia playing baseball and just being a boy, and also your World War II stories, and how you taught me to mow grass. But there is one thing I will never forget, and that is how much you loved me. You were such a blessing. Thanks for all the fun!

I love you and I will never forget you,

"Grampa" so many memories to cherish that revolve around you. I am glad to know that you are at peace with no more suffering. The last six days of your long and beautiful life were not as you would have planned, but I am glad I had the opportunity during that time to tell you how much I love you and how much you mean to me. Your first class flight truly was not the way I wanted to you see you in Erie, PA. Now you are reunited with Mom and Gram (what a reunion that must have been) give them love. Hugs and Kisses<3
