What a wonderful life Bud lived. To Joyce, Brittany, and Brandi. The only phrase I can come up with is… “Love In Action” i am so glad I was able to witness first hand, the love and care each of you gave Bud right up to his final moments. What a blessing to have been surrounded by so much love.
You are all in our prayers,
Cathi, Jimmy, Joey and Jessi
