Dear Mrs. Bucher, Beth, Artie, Mark and families, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It has been a pleasure purchasing my first couple of cars from Bucher Buick Cadillac and being welcomed into your home from time to time due to my friendship with Beth and Artie Jr. My mother certainly has enjoyed visiting with you and attending some class reunions as your former teacher. I told her about happening to find the obituary. May God Bless You All and Give you Comfort and Strength during this difficult time. Sincerely, Vicki and Bob Cromley
