Dear Chris & Andy,
I apologize that my condolences come late as Bud passed while I was on a Florida vacation. I am so sorry for your loss.
Your Mom was a fabulous teacher! I first met Bud when your Dad gave my husband, Bob, his very first teaching position at Central School. We then moved to your neighborhood and became great friends. Years later when I became Principal of Cottrell School I was looking for a dynamic team of two teachers for my upper level. I knew immediately who would be a good match for my team and hired Bud and Bob Driscoll. It was a pleasure to watch excellence at work and am happy to see that lasted 15 years!
Countless Auburn and Monmouth students have been blessed by your Mom's teaching, genuine concern, guidance, and tender care. May God now keep Bud in his tender care, as she truly deserves.
