    Dear Buster, you will never be forgotten, or your good deeds unnoticed. I can’t thank you enough for being such a great mentor and friend, and like a brother to my Dad, and a loving friend to my Mother after he passed. My memories with you are of much laughter, teasing and that bright smile of yours. Thank you for all you did for my family. My Lana Jane gained her wings too on Monday, my birthday, what a reunion that will be in Heaven. I know you will still tease her and try to keep her in line. You were so loved.
