    I know what it’s like to lose a sibling. The best I can explain is your family is like a wagon wheel and if the wheel loses a spoke things don’t balance out quite right. You have had your share of loss and for this I am so sorry.
    I will have the entire family in my prayers today and many more to come.

    I only knew Bud for a short period of time, but I can’t even begin to express how much we’ll miss him. Bud was a bright, welcoming person who would make you feel like you were apart of the family the moment you stepped in the door. Always willing to do things for others without a second thought and easygoing, he’ll always have an impact on our lives and everyone else that spent time with him. An unforgettable person who would cook unforgettable food; we’ll miss you.

    There was only one “Bud” and I am proud to have known him as a dear friend. My heart was broken with the news of his passing. I can’t say enough about Bud and the memories I will always cherish. My deepest sympathies go out to Oliver, Kay, Katherine, Sharon, Paula, Patricia, Stephen, Kevin, the grandchildren and all his friends and family. May God be your light and your comfort through these difficult times! I will miss my brother Bud and hope to meet him again in Heaven where there is no pain, or tears.
