I am so sad to know Bud is no longer with us but happy to know he is rejoicing with the Lord now in Heaven. I remember the first time I came to his house with Aimee. It took forever to get down that awful Hwy Y and I was car sick by the time we arrived. He was so sweet and had the biggest smile on his face. I always enjoyed seeing that smile almost everyday at the store or in the Inn when he would come to town with Marlene, Donald and Betty. He was always friendly and chatty. I pray for God's comforting arms around his family at this difficult time.

I am so sad that Bud is not with us anymore. He was the sweetest and kindest man. I enjoyed seeing you and him at the Inn. And it was joy to be able to see him at St Johns(Mercy) in Rolla the few times did. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. He will be deeply missed.

Marlene and family,
We will always remember Bud's sweet smile and friendliness. You were a special couple that loved the Lord, your family and friends. I read that you were married in Granite City ~ that is where my mother grew up. I pray comfort to come to you from our Lord Jesus Christ.
