One year ago today, you left this world. I can't believe a whole year has gone by. I miss you Bud more then I words can express. I have been going through pictures and I have found some of you and the boys and you and Dad. I cherish my memories of you. I love you and miss you.

Uncle Buddy you left a wonderful legacy with us, your two sons. In the last few weeks they have showed me the true meaning of compassion, and love unconditional. You are a gentle soul Uncle Buddy and I know Grandma and Grandpa are with you now. My dad lost his little buddy but only for a while. Catch up on your reading until we all meet again. Love you Uncle Buddy.

I miss you dad. 

From this valley they say you are leaving
I will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile
For you take with you all of the sunshine
That has lighted my way for awhile
Love Ron

Salmon Fishing?

Shared by Mikey Wilkens on February 26, 2012

My name is Mikey Wilkens (Schow) and Buddy is my uncle.  I don't remember the exact year but it was in the early 1970's when we went camping my dad Ray, and two brothers Russ and Rhett and our uncle Buddy, not far over the border into British Columbia. 
We were not far from a river/creek.  The morning after we set up camp, my brother Russ went down to the water and was soon yelling for everyone. We went down to the water quickly to see Russ was standing in the river/creek that was thick with these huge salmon.  I guess Russ figured it was time to go fishing. Russ was grabbing these huge salmon and throwing them backwards over his head on to the riverbank. He had a good head start on Buddy by about 15-20 salmon but Uncle  Buddy was throwing the salmon back in the water as fast as he could yelling for Russ to stop. 
Not sure why Russ finally stopped but I know both he and Uncle Buddy were exhausted. Uncle Buddy explained to Russ that the salmon were swimming upstream because they were laying eggs. That must be where my brother Russ got his desire to have a career in fishing!  Never will I forget that camping trip.
