". . .to know him was to love him." Oh, how true that is! "Bud" was our family doctor and a family friend. We loved him so, and are so sorry for your loss. My mother, Mildred Pinkerton, who will be 101 in Sept, was well taken care of by Bud for many years and was also godmother to John. The condolences and love of my family to all of you.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
