Hello--My Dad, Oscar Buss, was one of Steve's best friends. All of us--my sister, Carol Buss Raatz, and my brother, Robert Buss (Diane Buss Lulloff came along in 1954) loved Steve and Adeline, we all (the Koniks and us) lived near each other outside of Owen, and then in Southern Wisconsin, we lived in Sheboygan Falls, and then back up to Owen, Wis. But Steve was a hilarious man, and Adeline just went along with it. Dad and Steve always were together, and Mom, Esther Buss, and Adeline always loved doing things together. I remember playing with the "kids", and loved being at their home, because they had more kids than we did. Its always nice going back in time and reading of those whom we've remembered from "years back", Robert (Lipprandt) thanks for the rembrance of the Koniks. Janet Buss Holmes
