I was so sorry to hear about Bud, he was a real good friend to my Husband Richard Runyon, they would go fishing and enjoyed spending time together. I really thank God for Bud & Marty they were the one who introduced Richard and me and I could never thank them enough for that. I will be praying for the family and friends of Bud because I know he will be greatly missed. If there is anything I can do please let me know.. I love each and every one of you and will be praying for God to comfort you all. Love & Prayers
