    Dear Karen and dear Darren and families!
    I am so sorry that your Dad passed away dear Karen.
    He is happy to be with God.
    But we, on earth mourn and miss our family member who meant so much to us over our life time.
    Your Dad taught you from birth on; and then taught your children.
    I always feel when a loved one passes away, or any person passes away, the entire universe changes; and we all change.
    May Our Lord give you strength and courage; especially your Mom.
    I will say prayers for all!
    Peace and God blessings during your time of grief.

    Our deepest sympathies from the Rosales Family. Bud was not only a leader in Dawson Creek, but a friend and supporter of many in our community. Our families would often cross paths from when we grew up as kids, and Bud’s influence was there from the beginning, whether it was at Notre Dame Church, the family cars we drove, minor hockey or our friendships in high school. He will be missed, and for Theresa, Sonia, Jim and Karen, our love to you.

    “For it is in giving that we receive”
    -Prayer of St. Francis

  12. My sincere and deepest sympathy for the family of Bud. I was happy to have known Bud for over 18 years, through his son Jim. Several times Bud came to Vancouver to visit Jim and I, and I particularly cherished having dinner together with Bud as a family. When I phoned him and Terry to visit, he would always answer the phone and I was always pleased to talk to him. I will miss him immensely. May he rest in peace, and have eternal life in heaven.
