Brian and I were so surprised and so sorry to hear of Bud's passing away. We had some good times visiting in Quaker City and at your place. His garden was amazing! He was always protective of you and Zak and now you know he's looking down on you both. Take care of yourself now Cookie--stay strong. I've known you for 35 years and you have survived alot--you will be OK. I'm sorry Zak has had to go through so much in his young life!

Dear Cookie & Zak, We are all praying for you. I remember all the times Bud drove and you traveled together. You three stuck together and made lots of great memories. I remember Zak being excited about the garden...learning about 4H and growing tomatoes and potatoes! Cookie, I remember how you could count on Bud to drive and be a support to you. What a blessing for Zak to share your home and make good memories that will last a lifetime. Bud was a man that worked hard and was there for his family. That is honorable. You two are very loving and I know he will live on in your hearts. God bless you both. I look forward to giving you both a big hug when I see you. Love and prayers from MJ & Al
