  1. I thank God for this man who was best buddies with my Dad Kent for decades! The stories they could tell! Buster had a special name for me too “ ornery” – his way of saying ‘ you are just like me and your Dad’. I felt special to have this “ pet “ name! I miss Buster – and will always remember him with much affection ❤️🥲 and love to all the family and their friendship with our family! Love you Marge!! XO
