I was sorry to hear of Buds passing. I know my father loved him very much. I knew BUd through the family album and brief meetings over the years he was always kind to me and helpful when our father died. Bud in hearing of him and his accomplishments, provided for me a functional example to aspire to growing up, were it not for him and Sandys accomplishments and example, I would not have had a degree and stable career in life. Best Wishes and sincere regrets to all the family.
