To my childhood friend Marny and the rest of the Hodgson clan,
My mother, Alice Peat and Mary Beth Hodgson were best friends when Marny and I were tiny girls...so we became best friends. Although, we haven't seen each other since we were 8 years old, I think of Marny and her family every now and again. I'm sorry to hear about Bud but glad that someone in my family remembered to send me the clipping from the St. Louis Post Dispatch. Fondly, Mimi
To the Hodgson family,
Though we only knew Bud during the time that he lived at Meramec Bluffs, his keen interest in people and his graciousness were clearly evident. We offer our sympathy to each of you, and celebrate with you a life which was well-lived, having had a positive impact through his professional work and through his service in the community.
I worked with Mr. Hodgson from 1973 until he retired. He was a great person to work for and work with. He had great stories of the early days of BHN and I loved to hear him tell them. He will be missed. My sympathy to his family.
Kathy and the Hodgson family-
I am so sorry to hear of your dad's death. From all of your stories it sounded like he had a great life and that all of you cared deeply about one another. I had such a vivid picture of him - I will miss hearing about "Bud".
Take good care of yourselves,
Susan Gyorog (LSN)
My mother Dolores C Travers worked as a receptionist for his firm around 1956 or '57 and spoke very highly of this individual and their firm.
To all the Hodgson clan, We love all of you and are holding you close in our hearts and prayers. Love Ann and Bill Mueller
We are so sorry to learn of Bud's death. Haven't seen you in ages but remember all the past good times with you. Gary really admired Bud and enjoyed working with him and BHN. Our deepest sympathy and prayers are with you and your family.

Kathy and Family; So sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. He sounds like he had a full and wonderful life. You all have been truly blessed.
Bud was a great man and also a gentleman.
Many of us will miss him
I worked for BHN in the 60's enjoyed having Bud for a boss. Real gentleman.
I am sorry that I won't be able to be with you at the memorial service. You are all in my prayers. Mr. Hodgson was such a fun guy!
