I was so sorry to hear from Donna Wutshke Weiser that our class has lost Buzzy.  I'm sorry also that he suffered and am glad that his pain is ended.  This is a hard time of year to lose a loved one when the rest of the world is trying to be jolly. I hope you find comfort in remembering that Christmas should remind us of the promise that we will see him again.  Blessings.

There are sooo many things I will miss about Buz. Buz was just the greatest papa.. he would play ball with Kaden every time we would be there. I'm surprised they never broke anything:). Buz showed so much strength especially in the last couple months. He fought so hard. We love you Buz and will miss you. Rest in peace


 

Lillian and family we are so sorry for your loss. Rest In Peace Buz. 

Prayer for the Fischer family. We been friends for many years and had many fun times at TI. We'll miss those mondays. You'll be missed Buz, by many.

Grandpa, I miss you so much!  I wish I would have told you each and every day how much you mean to me!!  You are the best grandpa anyone could ever ask for!  You’re also the best great-grandpa anyone could ask for!  Mikey always enjoyed visiting you, talking about sports, watching Big Bang Theory (we think it’s funny Grandma doesn’t care for the show much... especially Sheldon, because he’s our favorite!), and playing games.  We will always cherish every memory we have of you.  We will always love you and miss you dearly!! You behave yourself up there in Heaven... but be sure to give everyone a good laugh.  WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!  Until we meet again; R.I.P. Grandpa Buz.  

I love you grandpa! Always and forever!

I love you grandpa! Always and forever ?
