    We loved you so much we wish we could have kept you here with us Each and every minute we were with you these last 6 months was a blessing to be with you. You were never a burden to us we just wanted to be with you in all you had to endure and not be alone. Our hearts were broken when you had to leave us. We held you so you knew you weren’t alone. So now you are on a new journey with all of our blessings We will miss you. Love Deedee,Bob. ❤️

    Growing up you were like a big brother. You always looked out for me at Nana Smolak’s. When you found out when I first was pregnant, you bought KFC to celebrate. When I lost the baby, you cried. We were not blood but we were family. I’m sorry we lost touch when I moved. Rest in Piece brother.

    Please accept my condolences at this difficult time. Buz was a true character and I am grateful to have met him and able to help take care of him as his health began to fail. I have never met anyone who overcame so many obstacles that he encountered. He will be missed. May he rest in Peace.
