Condolence: Respect. Admiration. Love. Gratitude. It is difficult to express the love and respect I have for Bud. He was the kind father I never had; the humble "Greatest Generation" soul; the brave "tin can sailor ; the example he set for all as he "walked his talk". I offer up my sincere sympathy to his family and admiration for the care you gave him around the clock those last weeks. He is already deeply missed by his church family as well. Rest well dear friend; you earned it. I love you.
