Mike and I are so grateful to have spent the Thanksgiving holiday last year with uncle Bud. We are always grateful for his generosity and kindness during our visits. We are happy knowing that he is reunited once again with the love of his life, Oma. The stories and memories and legacies will live long after they’ve gone in their children. We extend our condolences as we share in the grief and sadness knowing we will no longer see Opa sitting in his recliner watching his sports.
