Dear Dorothy, Conni & Rob:

I am Sad to hear about the passing of Bud, he was a very kind hearted man and it was always a pleasure to see him! I knew him threw the ELKS Lodge with my Father who was one of the "Good 'ole Boys" and I know they had the best time when they would go up to Lake "O" to catch all those Fish and then get everyone together for the Fish Fry which was always a blast!!! I am sure that he is now reunited with those "Good 'ole Boys" in Heaven having a great time, like in the old days! My Thoughts and Prayers are with you all during this difficult time!

Dorothy, we are so sorry to learn of Bud's passing. We were just with him a few weeks ago. Since Mom's family name was Moore too, they always claimed to be related. What a great man he was to all of us and we will miss him. I remember when he and Mom were in the hospital at the same time in the room next to each other and they would bang on the wall to each other, the two of them were always into something. I'm sure their swapping stories right now. Rest in peace Bud.

Bud was my co-sponsor twenty years ago when I joined the Elk's Lodge. I have always enjoyed seeing his smiling welcome and active participation with a group he loved so well. He will be missed.
