My deepest sympathies for your loss,
I pray you find comfort in the words at John
5:28,29 where Jehovah assures us “there will be a resurrection”. So we will see our loved ones again.

Norma, Pete and I want to tell you that we would have attended, had we known. Our prayers for your family. The two red chair's in the kitchen at Hope St. John, today were a loving reminder of all the times Bud would take a pause in his work and share a meal. Bud would always help where ever he was needed. We send you our love and God Blessings in the days ahead. Trisha Ward
