    To Massie and family of Buzz: Buzz will truly be missed by me as he was a wonderful man and great bowling friend. He and I bowled on the same team and had great competition. Massie definitely was his true love and spoke highly of you always! Deepest condolences

    To the family of Buzz (Emerson) - I did not know that he was born in Parkersburg until the last ELHS all school reunion. And I also found out that he had an uncle living in Belpre, OH, and that he and his wife used to visit the Middleton Doll Factory. What a dear and fine soul he was - may he rest in peace,

    Buzz was not only a sweet and caring friend to my family..he was a part of our family. We will surely miss him. I remember so many good memories from my childhood...and they always bring me a great deal of joy! I know that even though Buzz is not here physically that he will be forever in our hearts. It brings comfort to know we will see him again some day. Love you to the Moon and Back!
