    So sorry to hear about your loss, Doug. We so much enjoyed having Bud and Elsie as neighbors on St. Andrews. They often sat outdoors in front of their house on summer evenings, and we’d exchange greetings or just stop to visit a bit on our walks. One of your Dad’s one-liners was when I was out walking Ben, our chocolate lab, and as I walked by he called out, “Are you walking that dog or is he walking you?” There was more truth to his second suggestion! Your mom and I talked about her roots and connected because my mom grew up in Snyder, NE, and it seems to me she said she was also from that neck of the woods.
    In his last years at Richmont, I often saw Bud lovingly caring for your mom, and after she passed, we still greeted each other with “Hi neighbor”.
    Please know that we are thinking of praying for you. So difficult to say good-bye to our parents. Maybe “see you later” is more fitting?
    Our love to you and Vicki and your wonderful family,
    Sandy & Terry

    I am so sorry for your loss, I worked at richmont doing housekeeping for three years. Bud was my favorite to visit with while working there, always making sure I grabbed a snack and a pop before I left. He would always save the comics and the coupons from the paper for me, always checking in making sure I was having a good day. It was such a pleasure getting to meet him and Elsie, as well as all you kids. Seeing all the love, and laughter you guys shared warmed my heart. Sending all my love, and condolences your way.

      My dad and our whole family really liked you. We all missed you when you left Richmont.

      Dina,thanks for your comments. That sounds just like him, he really enjoyed people.

    We knew and loved Bud for many years. Bud loved my Mom’s popcorn balls that we made for Halloween and for Christmas. Often when he knew it was about time to make them, he would come out of the back with a “broken” sack of sugar for my Mom (Lucille Anderson) to use to make them knowing that she would always bring some back into the store especially for him. Bud always cared for his customers and was genuinely concerned about the people in the community.
