Our sincere sympathy to you all in the loss of your Dad and Grandfather. Both Bud and I feel a great loss also. Bud Meyering, a long time friend and faithful member of the "old poker group" has been our friend for a good many years. Time goes so fast and friends get involved with their own families but old friends are never forgotten. We too shall miss Bud. God Bless you all! Bud and Shirley Kulish
