Ginny CrewsI feel so Sad to hear of Uncle Buzz's passing. He was a kind and giving spirit and will be missed.
William E - nephew of G.E. HendricksonI am the nephew of George Earl Hendrickson( aka Buzz)
Sorry to hear about Buzz's passing, to reference the saying "Every cloud has a silver lining" the silver lining in this situation is Buzz is no longer suffering, also he is re-connecting with old souls from the past, Red and Virginia (his parents), Moi and Poi( his grandparents) Aunt Freddie and Uncle George and many others, that is going to be some reunion
I am in mourning for Buzz and his family, but at the same time I have a sense of being relieved and hope, when I think about the "silver lining" pertaining to Buzz
God speed Buz, you were a good man and a good soul - William E

Margo C. UnderwoodWith a sad heart I say farewell to Uncle Buzz. I will remember his great humor and love of laughter with all of his young nieces and nephew and sons. Uncle Buzz was a honorable man who served his country and state. I am proud to call him my Uncle and know heaven will rejoice when receiving him into their mist. We will all miss you, Godspeed.
