I have to say of all the people I have known in my life, Bud was the most likeable. His witty personality and his kind heartedness endeared him to everyone. For certain, he touched a lot of lives, including mine.

Sending you and your family my most sincere condolences for your loss. You will remember me as your employee in the Dean's Office, in the School of Human Environmental Sciences at UNCG, during a portion of 1991-92. That was a very long time ago, and we have lost contact. But please do accept the sincerity of my condolences upon the passing of your dear husband.
