I only met Bud once since I retired and moved back here to the area, however, through our conversation I learned that he had known my dad and had bought trucks from him for his farm. He shared some stories and information that he remembered about my dad. He was a wonderful man and I appreciate the fact that I got to meet him before his passing, My sincere condolences go out to your family and know that my prayers are with you and your family.

TH,

I am so sorry for your loss.Your parents were two of the sweetest people that I have ever known. I will always remember your Dad’s whistling echoing through the barn and your mother’s generosity as she always bought the custom jewelery that I was compelled to sell by my Catholic school. I thank God that I had the opportunity to visit them when I came up for my own mother’s service 2 years ago. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

TH,

I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I just lost mine and was in E.L for his viewing and service just last week. I thought about you all as I passed the farm house coming into town and again at the cemetary when we passed the Fisher monument. It was hard to get through but love and cherished memories will carry you through it. Your dad was a very sweet man.

Best regards,

Cynthia Mooney Young

TH, Buddy, Mike and Linda,

We were really sorry to hear about your Dad and friend. A large part of my growing up was associated with you guys and the Farm.

I’m just happy that I had a chance to sit and visit with Bud when we were in town this past summer.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
