      Dearest Leslie I am so sorry for your loss. Bud was such a good friend to me. I often think of the many years of good times we shared. He was so proud when you were born and never failed to keep the party going with you David and Melissa.
      He and your Mother never failed to include Melissa and me in family gatherings and events. I will always appreciate his helpful ways.
      You and your boys are in my prayers.
