She was the beloved daughter of Rick and Amy Bucher and the nurturing big sister of Grayson F. Bucher.Born November 12, 2004, Arden was an intelligent, charming, caring little girl. She could always be seen running, skipping, climbing, dancing, and bouncing around everywhere. She enjoyed playing on her swingset, solving puzzles, sweetly singing in her music class, swimming at the Y, reading, coloring, and painting. She loved counting as well as saying the alphabet, and she could even write her own name. She was a happy, loving individual, always ready to share a hug or a hand with her friends.
