A giant of a man, a warrior for Christ, was laid to rest today. His love for Jesus, Rita, his family, friends and church was never in question! We were blessed to know him and to share our lives with him for far too short a time on this earth. What a glorious day it will be when we are all together singing hallelujah and praising God for eternity!! You were an awesome example of Christian love to all who were privileged to know you. We love and miss you, brother.

Bud and Rita, y’all were some of our first friends when we starting going to Glen Meadows. You helped welcome us into the Generations class and became good friends. We loved sitting behind you in church and exchanging hugs. Little did we know when we hugged Bud on Sunday that it would be the last one this side of Heaven. We will miss Bud greatly...his warmth and caring, his sense of humor, and seeing him beside you, Rita. We love you, Rita and are here to support you in whatever way we can.

My prayers go out to the Taylor Family.
What a wonderful Boss he was....and what a wonderful smile he had especially when he started courting his beautiful Rita. Just seeing pictures I see that smile never faded when it came to her. He had such a warm caring heart.
So glad I got to meet you both. Much love and prayers.

May my prayer requests to God continue to cover you all in your time of loss. May he cover you with his feathers and under his wings may you find refuge and allow his faithfulness will be your shield.
Bud was a person I only had the pleasure of meeting a few times through work related situations and needs. He is such a lovely man. Though our encounters were brief they were delightful enough. I knew exactly who he was when I heard about the accident. His smile was always a fresh welcome and instantly put you in a good mood. He was fun, loving and could charm a snake. His eye were bright and clear full of God's love and cheer. I can only imagine how he family and dear friends loved ad cared and are attached to such a God loving man. I know he will be missed and cherished by many.
Though I know only few of you in the family and friends sector, My prayers are with you all and my heart is tragically sad and in despair for you all. I will continue in prayer for you all. God Bless.

Sincerely,
Cerelle Oseguera

Bud, I only met you last year on the Alaskan Cruise and knew you for 7 days. The man I met on that cruise was somebody I wanted to keep in touch with. I got to know what a great man you are through Facebook. Seeing your post and the love you have for Rita and our Lord, made me come to love you as a human. I have to admit you made me jealous with the love and devotion you showed to Rita and almost shamed me that I didn't show the same to my Wife. The world is not as bright as it was a few days ago. Until we meet again, keep watching over all of us.
