To my Mom, sister-in-law, nieces, nephews, siblings and all,

The loss of my brother Budd is so tragic. He will be missed by all of us and so many more in the community.

So many were given a helping hand, information shared, bees saved by teaching others, grandchildren well loved, children with something made of wood, recipes shared, meals shared, and so much more. Budd was a sweet, gentle and kind old soul. Budds' talents were many and diverse and were shared freely. Budd had a wry sense of humor and that would often show in a related song which he shared with only those very close to him. There was so much more to my brother than met the eye. Rest in Peace my brother until we meet again.
