I'll never see a classic car but I'll think of Bud. His bringing his Model T and his "Bonnie & Clyde" car for the children to see at the Lake Forest Fall Festival was one of the best parts of the event. I will really missing seeing him each Sunday at church. He was a good man.

Prayers sent to your family. I will always cherish the conversations and stories you shared and the joy of gathering at your home to watch Tennessee football. You always had something interesting to share upon each visit. I will remember you as a unique and genuine person and I not only enjoyed your life stories I also learned from them.
