Norm & I are sorry to know of Bud's passing & send our sincere sympathy, Lucille. We have fond memories of both of you as neighbours on Charles St. I especially remember Bud coming out to the 401 one night when I'd run out of gas. In recent years we enjoyed meeting you to play bridge at the Benson Centre. May a lifetime of memories sustain you in your loss.

Dear Aunt Lucille,

Please accept our condolences for the passing of uncle Bud.
God will never leave you. He knows how it feels to have a broken heart. He knows how much you need comfort and healing. But He won’t hurry you or ask you to feel better until you are ready. He simply promises to be there by your side comforting you always. May God bless you always and we will keep you in our prayers.

With our love and sympathy,
Alan and Anne-Marie
