Sue I hate to hear about the loss of your brother. I first met and knew Buck when we were in the 1st grade. That was several years ago but in one sense it seems like it was only yesterday. I was one month older than Buck. in the past few years I have lost family members, friends and classmates. It really makes you think how precious that life is May God bless you and your family as we mourn the loss of your brother.

Michael, I was very sorry to read about Buck's passing. I was always glad to see you and Buck at one of our field trials over the years. I thought a lot of Buck and enjoyed talking to him about bird dogs and just how things were going with both of you. My condolences to you and your family. Paul Bowen
