Relation: Friends

Keith, Merv and Kirk and families we offer our sincere the loss of your dad, grandfather and great-grandfather. Bud always had a great story to relate to get everyone laughing and we always enjoyed our visits. We had many good times with both Bud and Marlene and shared lots of laughs. They are missed but will never be forgotten. I will never forget the time they were over and Brianna was quite young. She was going around the room “dusting” and “sweeping” and saying “clean, clean, clean”. Both Bud and Marlene got such a laugh out of it they laughed about it for many years after. Two beautiful people. Our hugs to all of you.
