My sincere condolences to all Buddy's family. I'm so saddened to hear of his death, and that of Jeanette. I lost touch with Jeanette after her parents moved out of the old neighborhood on Ellsworth Drive. I've often thought of them both and wondered where life had taken them. I have many fond memories growing up with Buddy, and then Jeanette through Jr. High and High School. May your wonderful memories help get you through the darkness of his passing.

We were so sorry to hear of Bud's passing. We were his neighbors for ten years at The Woodlands. Bud and Jeannette would always see Dennis working in the garden right across from their front door, up on the hill. We became even closer friends three years ago and spent many a conversation with Bud as his van came up the road and pulled over. We will always remember him and cherish our conversations. We will also cherish our memory of the "convertible" stuffed castle we gave to Bud for one his cherished granddaughters. Our thoughts and prayers are with his mother, his daughter, grandchildren, brothers, and nieces. Rest in peace and serenity, dear friend, Bud.

We are so sorry to hear about Bud's passing. He was always such a nice man who never missed the opportunity to say hello. He obviously loved his granddaughters and cherished his time with them. Our prayers are with you during this time!
