Shirley, My heartfelt sympathy is with you and your family. Bud was a special brother. I always enjoyed our "long distance" talks and e-mails. He is at peace now.

I am a friend of Betty's here in Carrollton. I am so sorry for your loss. Betty had told us about her brother and that he was ill.

Sarah and Rachel, I am sorry I can't come as I explained to your mother.
I talked with your Dad just two weeks ago when he called me. I am glad I got to talk with him, and am thinking about all of you. Larry tried as hard as he could to stay ahead of those failing lungs, and he put up a good fight.
Now he can rest. We will miss him. Take care. Betty McVaigh

My condolences Aunt Shirley, my family and I wish we could be there. Uncle Bud is in a better place with the Lord. I will cherish my childhood memories of Bud and Don shooting the crows out of the trees that surrounded the house on grandma and grandpa's farm.
