  1. Irene, Karen and family; I am so sorry for your loss but Bud is smiling now that he is with Charlotte. He was always such a nice man. Love you all Randi

  2. My prayers and thoughts are with all you nieces and nephews and sister of Buds as well as all whom were family to Bud. He thought the world of you all! As a Med aide at Touchmark and seeing him and visiting him each day he would talk about you guys and how you were always there for him! I will miss my visits with Bud talking about what the weather was and was going to be as well as we would always talk and have fun with his singing puppy and see if the other puppy was moving!! Even though it’s tough it’s nice to know he is with his love of his life Charlotte!!! Even though he had a smile for me each day, now I know he’s grinning for sure with his wife!!

    With Sympathy,
    Touchmark CMA Kacie Kramer
