There is no greater love than God’s love. Now “Bud” is experiencing that love. My condolences to family members; Barry, Susie, Mary Beth and others. A death in the family is hard to learn to live with. In my own experience, you just have to put one foot in front of the other and keep on walking forward. Prayers to the whole family and dear friends. God Bless!
