    My condolences to the family. I remember Bud fondly as one of my favorite church van drivers growing up in the late 70s and early 80s. He was a very nice man who often treated us to ice cream cones before dropping us off at home. On a few occasions, he offered me advice that helped me with situations with friends at school.

    There is a special place in heaven for you Bud. I will pray for the loved ones who will miss you.

    Love and prayers to Bud’s families as we mourn the loss of a “mighty fine” Christian man! RIP in the arms of our Lord!
