Dear Chuck and John,
You know you both, along with Mom and Dad were like a second family to us and words cannot describe how sorry we are for your loss. Whether you were in Bud's family, or you knew him from the firehouse, neighborhood, church, village or you were simply his friend, you knew a real man.

Charlie and John,
Our sincere sympathy to you and your family. "Bud" was such a wonderful person. He loved his family, his church, his community, and his country. He will be sorely missed.
