I will never forget the first time I met Buck. I stopped at his farm for straw. He told me I didn't look like a farmer. I laughed because no one ever said that to me before. Then I realized I had clean clothes on. I recall all the times I stood around or sat in their kitchen laughing and getting to know them. I also have a bond with my dog as did Buck with his. I have never met any two people that I adored more than Buck and Shirley. Wonderful people! Take care Shirley and know that Buck will be causing a stir up in heaven. I will miss him.
