Dear Nina and Richard,
Bill and I will always remember the wonderful times we shared together in Round Top at Annie's birthdays and at the Meyer's Thanksgiving weekends! I will never forget the many times I heard Bud say to Nina - you are the best thing that ever happened to me and tell Richard - you are the most wonderful son a man could have. Bud was a wonderful person and I am sure that God will take really good care of him. I know that you both have many wonderful memories of your life with Bud - he was a loving and kind man and liked by all. Our prayers and blessings are with you and his whole extended family at this very sad time. May God comfort you in this time of need.
Love,
Doris & Bill Bosse

Dear Nina: I was sorry to learn of Buddy's passing. My husband of 52 years was Dan Miller, also now deceased, and Buddy was an usher at our wedding in 1949. He and Dan were good friends from an early age, and Buddy and I were friends in high school. You and I have met at the car lot several times while Danny was still alive. I now live in Beaumont in a retirement facility, but I try to keep up with my old friends. I know what you are going through now, and my thoughts are with you. Best wishes, Mary Miller

Dear Nina, You are in my thoughts and prayers. I know God will be with you and Richard during this sad and difficult time.
