To Bev & the Kids First, God Bless all of you with his Love. When I think of Bud it reminds me of my father and the "Old Guy" he was. You see the "Old Guys" make you wonder where they got all the "stuff" they knew & said & did. You wonder how they got so smart. You wonder where their smile came from. It makes you wonder who their "Old Guys" were. Well guess what they have passed it on. You can Thank God you had a Great "Old Guy" teacher. Our Blessings to you all. So start learnin some good stories & jokes. Lv Mic & Wy
