Breeze, you made everything you were around better because of your outgoing infectious personality. When you came in a room I knew it was going to be fun. I keep thinking about you jumping a ramp at vous on a tricycle and thinking what a nut! Your batteries never seemed to run out except on your bike! God bless you, Shayna and Bryleigh and all the Buff family and friends prayers to you for such a great loss. WFFW

To the Buff Family, Shayna andBrynleigh. I am so sorry to hear of Donnie’s passing. My condolences to you in this difficult time. Donnie was my trainer while I worked for Belmont Correctional. His training and expertise made me into the Corrections Officer I am today at Licking County Sheriffs Dept. He ALWAYS treated me with respect and like we were friends “forever” and whenever I needed anything or questions….he was there. Thank you for allowing me to experience and know a truly GREAT MAN…GOD bless you all.
