I remember the first time meeting Bud, we were in Junior High and he was fixing lawnmowers. I thought then, what a cool Dad he was wearing overalls and drinking lemonade out back. He teased Tim and Scott to no ends but loved them like no other. He lite up a room like no other and loved the Lord and his Family like no one I have ever met. His humor was contagious and he always had a joke for me, or a life lesson to teach.

Bubby, God’s Speed.
