Buck will always be remembered for is big handsome smile, huge heart, silly joking charming personality. There was never a dull moment when he was around. He will be very much missed and loved more than he ever knew. Always a permanent part of our hearts. He always said that goodbyes were used when you’ll never see that person again. You always said “Later”.  This still isn’t goodbye. Until we meet again. Forever and a day.
