Sorry I could not make it to the service in person. An online greeting is a poor substitute for an actual card, but I have been wanting to send condolences to Jennifer and Cynthia, and of course Mrs. Buxton. I always admired Mr. Buxton for his scholarly, genteel nature, and what a role model he was in raising such a phenomenal family. I picture him walking to your brick house day after day as it was under construction, such a lovely home built to look old, a quality I so admired. I'll be moving back to BD myself soon, so can give you a hug in person, Mrs. Buxton.
Jennifer and family. Jennifer I remember in college in Madison walking down Langdon Street with you and all of a sudden you pointed out "That's my dad's office!". It was a sweet and touching moment that he was right there in our path. Please accept my condolences.
Shirley, Jennifer, Dennis and Family,
Ed's needs changed, but not his love, nor the desire that his love would live on in all those who knew him. When you are in your moments of sorrow, look deep into your heart and you will find truth in the joy that he brought into your life. Please accept our condolences and thank you for letting Home Instead be part of your family. It was an honor to have known such a great person and he will be missed. May God, family and friends embrace you in comfort during this difficult time.

Thinking of the whole Buxton family and especially of Ed today. I have so many fond memories if Ed, and how kind he always was. We were so very lucky to have been the Buxton's neighbors for so many years!!!
To you, Shirley, and all the Buxton family, we send our love and sympathy. We will miss Ed immensely and fondly remember our conversations and times of shared friendship with him. What a grand legacy he leaves of family and friends.
Sending our love to you and your family, Jennifer and Dennis, at this time of loss and remembrance. What an amazing life and legacy he leaves to everyone!
Ed was my field supervisor at Dodge County Human Services in the 1968-69 school year. As his students, the five of us he supervised learned to appreciate rural Wisconsin and serving its residents. We learned much from him about service delivery where there were few resources available. After a year with Ed, though, we came to believe that he should no longer carry his lunch in a paper bag. And so, as our going-away thank-you, we gave him a proper lunch bucket. We laughed for many years about that.
After I became Ed's colleague at the School of Social Work, I always looked forward to his thoughtful, reasoned points of view and his quiet humor. He influenced and helped many people and will be missed.
Tim and Jennifer and families and to all of you, our sincere condolences on the passing of your father whom we thank for his service to the country and to society through you, his children, and grandchildren. We appreciate your musicical contributions to the lives of so many and for touching our lives. Our warmest thoughts and prayers. Jim and MJ Latimer Oregon WI
Dear Shirley: Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Ed was a beloved colleague at the university. Pauline and Jim Sparks
Eric, Julie and the entire Buxton Family, We are so very sorry for your loss. Mr. Buxton sounds like he had a long, happy and very fulfilling life and career. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. With deepest sympathy,
Shirley, Jennifer and "All" the Buxtons, We are so sorry for your loss and at the same time so Blessed that our paths crossed in life because of Ed and my dad, Norm Whitford, being such close friends. They met in the social work field and only worked a few years together when they were both young social workers. Yet, their friendship lasted a lifetime. When we were kids and Ed would come to visit or hunt in Poy Sippi/Pine River, we loved that he always brought delicious cherry jam...a treat we never got unless he came! Ed was a wonderful person who touched many lives in such a positive, quiet, kind way. He will be missed and is leaving a wonderful legacy.
Jennifer and family--Thinking of you all. I am glad I got to know him a little.
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
