Uncle Bud was a man dearly loved. He, Aunt June, Cynthia, Suzanne, and Jennifer were all such a part of my life at the Stone reunions, those times were such a blessing. May God bless and keep you all (especially sweet Aunt June) in the difficult times ahead, just please know that you are all loved dearly.
