  1. Laraine I am so very sorry to hear about Bud. I just found out yesterday afternoon. I wish I would have been able to attend the Memorial Service and pay my respects to you and your family. He was such a wonderful person and someone I considered a friend. I look back on the memories I have of him and it brings a heavy hearted smile to my face. He will truly be missed and always remembered.

  2. Laraine I was saddened when I seen tbe notice in the paper for your dad. I pray that you are strong and take care of your heath thru this sad time. I remrmber whenever we wouldclose a deal he would rub his hands together and say lets go close this deal Cin Lou!

  3. I know you you all miss Bud so much. I thought the world of him…he was always “up” and positive, and kind…it is hard to lose Tom and Bud in such a short space of time…I hope you can find peace in the remembering the good times, and fun and laughter…there was plenty of that.

    My love thoughts and prayers are with you.


  4. Lorraine and family:
    I was really saddened upon learning of the death of Bud! He was an incredible guy with a heart of gold and an awesome wit as well!
    It was great to reconnect with him when the two of you came to Coldwell Banker Partners. I always enjoyed visiting with him. We will all miss him dearly. My heart goes out to you! Love, your friend, Ed!

  5. Bud was a good friend and customer of Verle’s Barber Shop for so many years. He was a kind and truly gentle man of the old school. We won’t see the likes of him again in this world. May he rest in peace. I extend my sincere and heartfelt condolences for the loss of one so dear. May God bless and comfort you all during this extremely difficult time and in the days ahead.

  6. I cannot begin to imagine losing a Father and a Brother in the same month but when I read that I felt I had to write you and just say how sorry I am for your loss. May the peace of God guard your thoughts and give you all strength beyond what is normal during this time.

  7. I will remember Bud as one of the most caring and loving individuals I have ever known. Rest in the peace you so assuredly deserve.
