I am sad to hear about the passing of Uncle Bud. I have the best memories of him and always considered him to be a caring and loving person, always happy with an enthusiasm for having a good time. He was definitely personality plus. I was bummed when he and Aunt Marleen moved to Florida. He will be greatly missed.
