  1. Wanda and Family,
    You are in our thoughts and prayers. We loved Bud dearly and will miss him. He was one of the sweetest men I ever knew and the best hugger around. Daddy loved him too and would send his thoughts too if he was here.

    Love & prayers,
    Jean, Gary, and family

  2. Wanda, Steve, Amy, and Mike,
    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you! He was definitely an amazing man! I’m sorry I was not able to be with you today. I’m sure Bud and Papa are Deer hunting and telling old stories in Heaven.
    With Love,
    Curri
