  2. From Pat and Lorraine Ryan
    We will miss Bud. Bud was always fun to be around. We were aquanted through the FMCA but we also met him in our travels in Florida, just when you least expected him– there was Bud. Bud had a good attitude about life and I believe he enjoyed the companionship of his many friends in the RV lifestyle almost as much as we enjoyed seeing him at various rallies. Goodbye Bud, you will be missed!
