    Before i left for vacation you were the last person to say goodbye to me. You were always so funny and an amazing neighbor. You’re now up in the clouds with the sea guls or as you called them ‘flying rats’. You will be greatly missed. Zack Young 16 yrs old. Dohr apt.

    Bud was a delightful tenant at Dohr Apartments. All the maintenance men knew him and enjoyed chatting with him. They feel very sad as they looked forward to talking to such great tenants. More importantly his was like family to us and will be greatly missed and thought of often. The Dohr staff

    Dear Debbie & family: I was so sorry I couldn’t make it to say goodbye to Bud. He will always live on in my heart. He was such a dear friend. I don’t think he knew how much he brightened my day as I hope I did his. I will miss his funny stories & how he always called me ‘Doc’. But most of all, I will miss his smiling face and his joyful laugh. Again, accept my sincere sympathy. He will be missed very much by all his friends at Rite Aid….especially me. Sincerely, Marilyn Kearns

    Dear Family Of Bud. I have been blessed to have had Bud as my neighbor and friend. I enjoyed chatting with him many times in the summer and quick chats in the winter. We had many laughs together, especially when we teased another dear friend of his, Don Dailey. The energy of our neighboorhood is quiet right now, as we remember Bud, as our Uncle also, and our dogs will miss the treats they all looked forward to when Uncle Bud was outside. Thank you, Bud

    Hello, I only had the priviledge of meeting Bud only once,but heard SO MUCH about him from my sister,Jean Beyer. I know he was such a good person and if you had him for a friend,you were fortunate. Jean talked so much of him–he always gave Jean a calender for my car. I thought of him every time I looked at it. We will miss him. Barb

    The first time I met Nelson, we were 9years old and in the third grade, he always had such a wonderful smile, we became instant friends, we both lived in Dutchtown and walked to school together often, just chating as we walked, he would very often get teased because he was walking with a girl, but he would just laugh it off……I just can’t believe he’s gone, I just wish we could have stayed in touch as adults…. I shall continue to chat with him and shall always remember his smiling face.
