  1. My heart is breaking again… Bud was a good man. Him and Jan made mommas day every time they came to visit her in the nursing home. They would always bring momma and her roommate treats – hot dogs and milkshakes. Bud was such a good brother. I know he was a good dad, uncle, grandfather. I believe he could not be without Jan. Always together, together now in heaven. No more suffering. God bless all the family.
