    Bud played music with us quite often at the Farmers Market and Lost River Market. What a kind and gentle man! I have been thinking of him and missing him. He sure loved music. Wish I could see him smile and hear him sing "My Blue Heaven" just once more. Blessings, comfort and love to Bud's family. He will be missed. Becky Sprinkle
