Dud and I played many rounds of golf together and enjoyed every one of the times. Good golf, good food and fun together. I will miss him a great deal.

Virginia,

I am so sorry for your loss. Know that Dudley will be missed by many including the neighborhood pets.
During our walks in Windsor Hills, Aysha, the Sheltie, and I enjoyed our visits with you, Dudley, and Teddy.
You and the family are in my thoughts during this time.
Warm regards,

Those of us who knew Dudley well, could write a book. The weekend after he moved to Lenexa Ks. He and all of his neighbors got acquainted...Building a 6'0" cedar fence around the back yard for his dog "Joe" He and I and several co-workers hit a one and a half inch telephone cable with a half h.p. post hole digger, knocking out all of the land line phones in the subdivision ( this was back in the 80's before cell phones) I think it was several days before phone service was restored...I have many, many fond memories of our times and conversations together...

You sure loved your dogs! Those walks around neighborhood and Jones Park with Teddy amazed me. Jordy now "is the one".

We will miss you for sure. Loved those lively political discussions.
