Not sure what to say?

Dick Buse was a kind and generous man who could delight a gathering with his stories and jokes. He suffered from a cruel disease and will be missed by many. My thoughts, prayers, and love are with Elaine at this sad time and always.


I never knew Mr. Buse was from Massachusetts.
Memories last forever :)
Extending heartfelt sympathy to all of his family.

I am sorry for your loss. I wish I had known Dick for a longer time. I will never forget out 'midnight snacks' and sharing a love of big bands. He was always a gentleman.

I cannot say enough what a great person Uncle Dick was. It was heartbreaking for me to see him decline from the wonderful performer of magic tricks and teller of countless jokes and riddles that I knew when I was young. I didn't see him at the very end, perhaps for selfish reasons of not wanting to see the change, but I know that he is somewhere now where he can continue to perform his magic and tell his jokes for all those that we have lost. While he is much missed here, he is a priceless...

Dear Buse Family,

I'm so sorry to learn of Mr. Buse's passing. I will always hold fond memories in my heart of all the time I spent at your home during middle and high school. And of course the wonderful time Diane and I had at Myrtle Beach at the Schooner. Please know each of you are in my thoughts and prayers, and I hope you will remember and embrace the wonderful legacy he left behind. May God bless you!

I'm sorry for the loss of your best friend, Elaine. Reminding you and others who love him that his remarkable traits and character live on in you must feel like little comfort now. In time, though, I hope you can smile easily whenever you recognize those moments of Dick's influence in your life. I'm pretty sure he's enjoying big band music every night now.

I am so sorry to hear of Dick's passing. I know the past few years have been the longest goodbye. Sometimes there are no words for the feelings in the heart. Sympathy and understanding are with you.

Dick was my brother-in-law and one of the smartest, funniest people I've ever known. I can still picture him reading "Is There An Elephant In Your Kitchen" to my daughter (his niece) when she was a little girl. I'm sure that he now leads the heavenly choir in song just as he always led us at every birthday gathering. He will most certainly be missed by all who knew and loved him.
