Our prayers are with you and your family. You always talked of your visits with your folks and how much you enjoyed them. I know you will miss your Dad. Take comfort in your friends and in knowing he is in a better place.

Sue,
I will always remember the steak and eggs breakfasts at your home during our college days. Your dad was a great cook and a gracious host. I am sorry to hear of his passing. You have my sincere sympathy. Judy

On Tuesday, November 26, 2000 I sat with you while Cecilia went to the doctors. I enjoyed the visit very much. You knew I was there. There were many things I would like to have said, but the words just didn't come -- like when we were little and lived on Oxford St. in Harrisburg, PA. We had a good and happy childhood. I remember you playing cowboys and Indians with your friends. You had a cowboy outfit with lasso and a six-shooter. Your bicycle was your horse. Sunday afternoon Mom would pack a lunch and Dad would take us up to Bailey's Grove for a picnic.

Than we moved to the country. There you had a paper route, and I helped you deliver papers. You rode your trusty steed (bike) and I walked. After graduation you got a job with Wayne Feeds. They liked you and promoted you. You were transferred to their Binghamton, NY mill. There you met your beautiful wife, Cecilia, and eventually had two lovely children -- Butch (Paul,Jr.) and Sue. Sue presented you with a grandson, Christopher. You sure were a proud grandfather, and you played the role to the hilt. I enjoyed watching you because we didn't have a grandfather.

You joined the Air Force and trained our boys to fly B-24 Bombers. Retired at last, you and Cecilia traveled far and wide, finally settling here in DeSoto Park, Sebring, FL. This surprised me and made me very happy, as I got to show off my "Big Brother"!

My brother taught me many things such as peeling potatoes. He told me I cut half the potato away. After watching him peel potatoes, I did better. I think of him every time I peel potatoes. And in a restaurant, if the food isn't right, send it back. If you can't finish it all, take it home. He also told me to tip good (redcaps, cabbies, waiters, waitresses, etc.) because they will remember you next time. He was right with this good advice.

Bud, you are in a beautiful place --blue skies, birds singing, gentle breezes and everyone is happy. Bud, if there is a kitchen up there, check it out, because that is where you will find me one day.

God Bless.

Love, Dottie
