    Our prayers and thoughts are with the Bueche family. I lost my life time friend of 65 years on Thanksgiving Day. Donnie was a unique individual. He had a special way about him where you couldn't help but like him. He had an infectious smile and if he told you something, you could count on it as being factual. I will miss our frequent telephone conversations and that huge grin, I just knew he had, as we spoke to one another. Goodbye my friend.
    God bless the family of Donald James Bueche.

    Larry, Pat, Glo and David,

    I am truly sorry for your loss. Donnie was one of the sweetest people I've ever known, and a friend to everyone. I'll always picture him playing his guitar, singing Hank Williams tunes with your Dad, cooking his famous jambalaya, trying to out fish Bobby, and of course ...smiling! Some of my fondest memories were from years ago when Bobby and I were invited to your many family gatherings. He was a special man, and I will always remember him fondly. Please know that you're in my heart ...and especially in my prayers. God bless your family. Love, Nell
