Cousin Budge! I love you! You will be greatly missed, but you are dancing with Sarah, laughing with your brother, and hugging your parents. You gave the best hugs ever!

Taps has played;
Your tour is over;
Well done hero;
At ease... soldier.

Much love,

Craig and Todd,

Many condolences and hugs from afar. Your parents are together and dancing again. May God ease your hearts and give you strength.
God bless,
Lori, Mark and Lee

Uncle Budge!

You have touches so many lives in this world for the Love of Christ!

I will always be so thankful that I can call you "Family!" The amazing influence you had everywhere you went was so incredibly special! You truly served well as a follower of Jesus Christ! There are quite a few amazing pilots out there due to your "Brilliance" in the cockpit, and your ability to share that knowledge with your students!

So, now you have "mounted up on the wings of Eagles!" Running and not growing weary, and walking and not growing faint!"
Isaiah 40:31

I Love You and will miss you and our laughter together!

You were the best of men, a faithful living witness to Christ and my best friend. You fought the good fight and ran the race with grace and fulfilled every responsibility and duty you ever had with perseverance and without complaint. You loved unconditionally.

I will love you forever, and I miss you. Rest peacefully with the Lord and our family who have gone before you❤️🙏.

Your sister, Kathy
