Danna and myself would like to express our heartfelt condolences to Dorothy, Pat, Bill, Doug, Don, the grandchildren and all the family. I share many fond memories of Bud going way back to the 1950s including as a 3 year old riding on his Harley with him! We were so glad to have spent time with him and Dorothy these past two summers at Bill & Mindy's and Pat and Angelynn's wedding. Mike & Danna Lashmett
