Dear Karin, Julie and family…please know I am thinking of you and keeping you close in prayer…love and hugs, Ellen Neale
My Love & Prayers go out to the entire family. When God sits at the helm, as he does with this family “All is well”.
I always found Bud to be a kind and intelligent fellow who never hesitated to speak his mind. We had some delightful conversations years ago regarding Christianity, oceanography, music and life in general. My thoughts and prayers are with Karin and the family. I know he will be sorely missed.
Dear Karin and family,
When I look at Bud’s photo, I am reminded of all the great times we had, both at your home and our home. He will be missed, for now, but not forever….Praise God! I’m so glad that “the guys”, Jim and Bud, are “together again”! In the meantime, Karin, I’m still here. We have many new Chapters, “to write”. My heart goes out to you. Call me, anytime.

Karin, Tina, Julie, Chris and family,
My heart goes out to each of you in the Homegoing of Bud. I am so sorry for your loss, but I know you find comfort in the knowledge that he is now Home in the presence of the Lord.
You all will be in my prayers and thoughts in these days ahead.
To Tina, Julie, Chris – I can relate to the loss of a Father, having lost mine more than 9 years ago. I can assure you that His grace will sustain you in these days ahead.
I have good memories of having been in your home over the years during the time of Tina’s wedding and also in helping with Chris’ wedding reception. You are a great family and I truly feel for each of you in your loss.
May God bless, comfort and strengthen each of you.
In His Love and with my deepest sympathy, Alton
