I was very shocked and saddened to find out of Bud's passing. I have always enjoyed him and Peggy. We would cross paths while we were all out walking. I also remember seeing him at First Methodist when I was a member there. He was such a delight to talk to. He could always make me laugh. I will miss seeing him around town. My thoughts and prayers are with all the family. God be with you all especially now and always. Love to all!

Walking with the ladies thru town won't be the same without passing Bud along the way. Loved that Peggy joined us many times, and always enjoyed seeing both of them at breakfast after our walk. Will keep Peggy and the family in our prayers, Kathy and Sid Bush
