I have so many wonderful memories of Bud and I will cherish them the rest of my life! Bob, nor I, never thought of him as a brother- in-law, always a BROTHER! He was a great guy and will be deeply missed!!

Know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers during this sad time. Bud will be missed by many, but that little laugh of his and the twinkle in his eye when he was being "Bud," aka Mr. Ornery, will live on in our memories and our hearts forever. Hugs to all...
