I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Mr. Budden at MSP in the 1970s when I transferred from MSP Gun Files to Business Administration in 1972 or 1973, beginning my career in Accounting which I am still in today with MSP Accounting. I always enjoyed working with him and remember the nice Ford T-Bird that he had back then. Rest in Peace, Mr. Budden.
