Most positive thoughts and prayers to each of you on Bud's passing. When I think back fondly of times and experiences at Monroeville, Bud certainly is among them. And when I say experiences, I mean EXPERIENCES! He was always in my corner and never hesitated to let me know his thoughts - which I certainly enjoyed hearing. He surely leaves a void on earth but makes Heaven a better place. He will be missed.
