Buz often would send me private messages, as support, encouragement, or just friendly greetings. He often told me stories of his sons beloved adopted children from China. In reality he was a stranger to me, but in another sense I feel a sadness of losing an old friend. He was clearly passionate about his ideas, while at the same time remaining unfailingly tolerant and polite to others. I often felt bad for him having to fend off so many critics at one time, but he never seemed to mind.
Sincere condolences to all his family. He made a lot of friends here.
