I think of Bueche Landscaping every time I walk through my garden and also my mother's in Royal Oak. Larry and Rhonda, please know I am thinking of you at this important time of reflection and remembrance. Each year as the purple columbine blooms, I will think of the Bueche family legacy. My best, Wendy Leonard.

Vern was such a presence at Our Saviour's -- he will be missed. It was my pleasure to work with him during my time as organist at the church.
