    Sorry to hear of Bud’s passing. Our prayers and sympathy to Donna and family. Just last month when Bud was in the hospital, just down the hall from Orville, Bud offered a prayer for Orville, which was greatly appreciated.

    Donna-Sue Crabtree Ryan worked with you at Washington Mfg. back in the 60’s. Earl worked with Bud at the old Wayne Building. We were very sad to hear of Bud’s passing. We have tried to find you both for quite some time but to no avail. We called also but never did get a reply. Praying for you and all the family and May God bless and keep you all in His special love and care! Amen & Amen!
