  1. Bud was a good friend and he will be greatly missed. I am proud to have had the opportunity to know him. Condolences from Texas.

  2. I remember Bud well. He was in the youth program when Vern and I were at Sweethaven. Most memorable has to be our trip with the youth to camp in North Carolina. We took Bud with a broken leg and lots of warnings from Norma. So comforting to see that Tony, another member of that same group, will be bringing the service for the family. My best to the family and friends.

  5. May God comfort you through this heart breaking time of your lives, Mary Jane, Norma, Ann and all the family. Bud was willing to help me with anything I asked of him.
