  1. Faith & Reagan Wood :

    Words are never adequate in moments like these. We will say though, that our hearts go out to you, and we will always remember the many wonderful camping adventures we created together and recall fondly the enthusiastic laughter of Bud – in the kitchen, on the deck and in front of the fire! This is how we choose to remember him. There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.
    You are all in our thoughts and in our hearts. We share your grief.
