Jim was always easy to talk to and liked to joke around. We remember seeing him at family functions and he always fit right in with his friendly ways. We always enjoyed his company. We offer our condolences to his loved ones. Uncle Woodie and family

I had the pleasure of being one of Mr. Buss’s medical providers and reliving their adventures across the country on their motorcycles. Especially when they got caught in a snowstorm. May the memories you have shared with Jim and Mary ease the loss in your heart. -Christina H.
