Dear Sandra, & Family, Bud will be missed very much by myself & Terry(Malone). He was always offering to help with anything, as we always offered the same. We'll miss Bud driving to the house on his lawnmower, & honking his horn as he drove by.
We're saddened to lose such a kind & compassionate neighbor; people like Bud are hard to find, & we both feel fortunate to have known him & Sandra.
Bud will be missed terribly, but will never be forgotten by us. Blessings of Love & Comfort we send to all of the Family. Bud, we'll miss you.( DeeVillano & friend Terry Malone.)
