Officer Buckner,

I'm so very sorry to hear of your tragic loss. It seems so many law enforcement officers are lost due to traffic collisions. I will pray for your wife, mother, brothers, sisters and all your friends, loved ones and colleagues. Rest in peace.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. – Matthew 5:9

Officer Buckner, or as we always called you "Buck" and "Buck Buck", I remember our academy days of you pretending to not laugh at my jokes. I always had a joke of the day, and my mission was to make you laugh at the joke, no matter how stupid it was. You had a way of making everyone laugh and feel calm when you would talk with us. When we were doing extra PT after each academy day, you would always push our group to finish the workout to the best of our ability.

I remember you finally responding to our group text and we were all so excited that you responded. It was great catching up, even if it was brief. I'll forever hold our adventures in my memory, and you'll never be forgotten. Thank you for your service and, more importantly, thank you for being a friend.
