Darlene, I am so very sorry. I lost my wonderful husband in 2014. He was born in 1948, so I always kind of guage the time i had by that date. You had more time with your husband than I did, but it will never be enough. As long as you had him, it will never be enough because you are still here. I lost Wesley five years ago, but in some ways it feels like yesterday. I hope you are stronger than I am, because I haven't handled it all that well. Prayers to you and yours.

My heart hurts to learn of this. Buzz was the kindest man and a great mentor to me. His love for Darlene and his family was immense and easily felt by anyone that knew him. I will always remember his stories that would make me laugh out loud and then just thinking of them. He was a humble, caring person. Much love to you Darlene. Xoxo Benjie Swenson
