To those that didn't know Buck,


This is one of the things he said to me in a private email he sent me on June 17, 2005. (He died 2 days later.)


"I skim over the forum occasionally and see that most questions arehandled quite adequately by "strangers", whom I don't recognize; sothere is little reason to add my two cents."

He knew that the people coming here for help were in good hands.

:pray:

By the Way,

Am I the Only One that thinks it's A Little Bit Odd that Pam Nock and Carl Lewis were both born on October 16th?

3Bears, Buck was truly one in a million, he really had a way of puttingthings, if you go over his old posts you will see what I mean, he wasand still is a real treasure to us all.

A gentle man who made me feel welcome right from the start and I willnever forget the day he said to me about friends and family and said heconsidered me one of the former, it made me smile the biggest smile atthe time, that's what he did, he just had a way that warmed you rightto the very core of your being.

Buck, as i'm finding out was very eloquent with his words. He was a teacher right? Did he ever write/publish anything?

It was in my Domestic Rabbits magazine that Ifound the article that Buck died. I didn't know him, but it mentionedthis website and that he went on it often. So I decided to check itout. When I first got on the site and saw the picture ofCarolyn I thought maybe that was buck because in the picture I thinkthey look a lot a like. And their names are very similar too.(I thoughtmaybe he went by Carl instead of Carolyn) Now it has all been clearedup for me. Sorry i never got to know him. I am enjoyingreading the posts on this site. It's nice to know there are so manypeople who are enjoying rabbits so much. I got my first rabbit when Iwas 7 yrs old. My Dad said he'd buy me a rabbit if I could learn to saymy r's correctly. I had to say Red Running Rabbit instead of wedwunning wabbit. I got my first rabbit at Christmas. It was acalifornian. I named her Taffy. After that I had a new rabbit aftereach one passed away. I had them until I was around 13. I have nowgrown up and have my own kids. Then out of the blue the rabbit bug bitme again and I am back into them! I have 5 mini rex. Anyway, sorry toramble.
I love all the photos too.
Thanks.

As someone has said he was 'One in a Million', and in my eyes still is.

Through is passing, this forum has become more of a family than ever before.

His passing affected all of us on the forum, as you can see from these threads

As you can see, the power and strength of this forum, is amazing, notjust in bad times, but also in good times.

Buck is our guardian angel. He keeps an extra special eye on all ourdear lost little ones, until the day comes for all to be reunited.

I myself have a special section of my website, dedicated to Bucks tips,tricks and words of wisdom so that people can continue to learn fromhim even though he is no longer here in body (but he is here in spirit).

Bless you Buck, I never really got to know you, but I still miss your words of wisdom.

Jim, reading your post made me thinkback to what Buck had sent me in a private message once, and I justwent back then and read it and it just gave me comfort reading hiswords to me.

Amazing how one can touch another so much without evenpassing a single spoken word through their lips, but throughtheir words they can speak to your heart.

With all due respect, Doc Nock, you are a 'lil odd.

You don't really wanta be "normal", do you??

I don't think you'd be as funny; and I know you wouldn't've gotten into rabbits!

Heavens to Betsy! Anyone normal wouldn't pick rabbits!

I just stopped by after maybe a year away. Iwanted to see how The Night of the Lepus was for everyone this year. Ihad no idea I'd find such sad news.

I hope bumping this is OK. I'm just so sorry to learn about Buck'spassing. I know many of you were close with him. He was sucha funny, intelligent person. Very much a father figure of the RabbitsOnly forum I think.

My heart goes out to his dear friends and his family.
