I was there when Bud & Betty got married at 802 E. Green St. He was my lst brother-in-law. We became good friend & golfing buddy, when I was in town. We joined up with 2 men @ Blair Park. I told a joke ( a little off color). Nobody laughed. Bud whispered to me on the next tee, that is a preacher & a member of his flock. After we finished our game, he said "That was most silent he had ever seen me".
Another wonderful, loving person to greet us all at the Gates of Heaven. Thanks Bud for being MY brother-in-law. Larry Campbell
