  1. Margaret and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I loved to hear Buster laugh. He sure was a cat lover and a kind-hearted person. I am grateful to have had him as a wonderful neighbor all these years. He always tried to help me whatever the problem whether it was a snake in the yard or taking me to the ER when I broke my arm or a dead battery. He will be missed in the community.
