    Although I am the youngest sibling and Bud as we have always known him (Art) was the oldest we were close. We will miss our monthly phone calls and the laughs we had as he would tell us all the capers he had been up to. We both had a love of animals too. He is now at peace with Marj at his side. You will always be in my thoughts Bud and will have that little tipple for you every so often. God Bless and I love You.
