    Pam,

    That flower is so appropos to his passing.

    How he appreciated, respected, and loved you. He wanted to meet you sobadly. He was fascinated at your set-up for your rabbits, and he alwayshad the highest regard for you as a Teacher. He used to say all thetime, "I've been in forums for a long time and have seen a lot ofpeople come and go, but the one that keeps coming back to give isPamnock. She is a true Teacher."

    I wish he knew how much you loved him. He knows now though.

    He was a very humble man and wasn't aware of the huge impact he had on others.

    Peg,

    Pamela227, who had lost her precious baby months ago, put that gorgeouscollage together. I have it as the cover of Buck's rabbit binder now.Bless Pamela227's heart. She didn't get another bunny, but she stillchecks in on us from time-to-time. (Thanks Pamela227 :kiss:)

    The rabbits and people in it from the top left are: Missy and Calbert,Buck with Mitzie (now dootsmom's baby), and Maxwell Goodbunny (Buck'sfavorite rabbit that met him on the Bridge), Buck and The Missus at myplace New Years Eve 2004-2005.

    On the bottom, Buck's holding my Girl, Cali. He always wanted a Flemishand when I got Cali in November, he couldn't wait to get his armsaround her. He and The Missus were here for New Years and he wasso excited to meet her. He said, "I won't live long enough tohave a Flemish, but it's really neat now that you have Cali because Ican visit and keep up with her." He loved her. Can you tell by thesparkle in his eye as he's holding her? She loved him too. Trancedright out for him.

    :)

    Tinysmom feel free to use the collage :) anyone else that wants to use it is welcome to as well.

    Thinking back to it, I appologize to carolyn, raspberry & slg Ishould have asked permission to use their pictures in the collage butat the time my mind wasn't really in the right place to be thatlogical. All I was thinking was how good of friends buck &carolyn were & how important that picture slg drew for buck was& how much she couldn't wait to give it to him.
    :foreheadsmack::embarrassed: My deepest appologies to you gals. :bouquet:

    I'm touched that the picture was used for Buck's tribute cd/lyrics!Really sorry I couldn't make it to the bunny party, i wanted to go sobad :tears2:

    No apologiesnecessary here. I don't mind any photo being used in honor of Buck aslong as SLG's true identity is protected. Which it is, (I grayed outher name on her picture and it made her mad) She wanted everyone toknow it was her standing next to Buck on top of the rainbow.:?Oh well, somethings just have to be done Momma'sway....

    Pamela227,

    Buck would've been so honored to know that you did that for him. Hefelt so badly when Oreo died and wanted to reach out to you so much. Heknew the kind and gentle heart you have.

    Helen and I know it too. We couldn't be more grateful or moved by sucha tribute. It took the CD cover, the Lyrics binder, it sits as a coverpage for his Rabbits Binder, and it was on his memorial board. We'renot done with it yet, either, My Friend. It will go in his scrapbook,on my binder and in a frame.

    Can't thank you enough for the empathy, compassion, and love you extended when you created that most treasured piece.

    Much Love and
    Respectfully Submitted,
    -Carolyn and Buck's Family

    I feel so badly. I knew I had beenaway for a while, but this I didn't expect. I just wentonline and starting reading post's and noticed so many people hadchanged their avatar to a picture of Buck Jones. I fearedsomething must be going on. I began to search further, andnow I understand why.

    I'm saddened for all of our losses. I know that he is in abetter place, but he will be truely missed. I always lookedfor his topics and advise on situations.

    We love you Buck, many prayers to your family and to you Carolyn!!!

    Bless your hearts, Friends.

    The Missus is still getting donations to the shelter that was listed in Buck's obituary.

    Today one came in from England.

    The Missus calls in for the addresses so that she can write the peoplethat donate and the woman that is keeping records said, "Mrs. Lewis,:shock: Your husband was known all over the world! It's amazing theamount of donations we've gotten in and are still getting."

    Do you have any clue how comforting that is to our Dear Helen?

    God Bless You.
    Buck would be so humbled.

    :pray:

    That is Great news !!!!

    It is quite amazing how one person can affect so many peoples lives, and global as well. Im stunned !!!

    I can see that Buck will have one beaming smile on his face, knowing that so many people can help a notworthy cause.

    I think about him daily, and still think that I'll see a post of his waiting, or some witty response.

    Ditto. I know that he thought a lot of my Pernod, and I often tell herthat Uncle Buck is watching her, so she'd better behave herself. Ioften find myself with a picture of his smiling face flashing throughmy mind.

    I signed on today to get advice from people likeBuck about thebuns that I introduced here at Xmas. I haven'tbeen on in a few months due to a new job and I was looking through theold posts. I was so shocked to hear the news. I had so manyconversations and good advice from him, and was looking forward toanother chat about erroneous apostrophe usage - he was one of the onlypeople I chatted to who shared my fury! A very funny and kind man.

    I would like to pass on my deepest sympathies to the family: he will be sadly missed. :bigtears:

    Bless your heart, LindsayandKen.

    Buck enjoyed chatting with you. He would ask about you fromtime-to-time because he didn't see you around. I'm sure you could tellby his replies to you that he enjoyed your company.

    Funny that this thread came back. Someone knows that it's a coincidence too - *giggles* - NOT!

    Buck may not be here physically, but he sends his signs. Your reply wasone of them to me this weekend. Can't thank you or the people he usesto get his message across enough for that. It's a treasure. Even indeath, he remains the supportive and loving friend he was in life.

    Thank you for caring and expressing it to the family. I'll be sure to tell them.

    :pray:

    I still can't come here and see Buck's photo insome of your avatars without a pang. It's amazing how oneperson that I never even met has impacted my life somuch. The board just isn't the same without him. Hewill always be remembered here.

    I'm glad to read that you're still holding strong, Carolyn. The loss of a true friend is not an easy one.

    Dearest BunnyMommy, :hug:

    Buck didn't die. He knows what's going on in our lives.

    Trust me...if you listen closely and watch carefully, you'll catch hissigns. You'll know when he is speaking through others because it willsound a lot like him. Buck was a great communicator; he still is.

    God Bless You and Yours. Buck was my Best Friend; Danny was yourSoulmate I am impressed with your ability to continue on, My DearFriend. You were a great inspiration to me through this.

    :kiss:

    Love to You and Our King,

    :rose:
