Dear Susie, Rosemary& Wesley and children,

So sorry to learn this morning of Bud's passing. I always think of him passing the Budget car lot, my purchase of cars, and your mother who was such a sweet lady.
Thoughts are with you and sorry I didn't know about his passing until today... Larry & Family
