    Kay, I’m thinking of you and sorry for your loss. Many year ago, I rode with Bud to
    summer classes at Drury. That was a really big deal and I remember the trips
    being quick and fun. On some of the trips I think we flew close to the ground , but
    always got home in one piece.
    Cherish your memories.

    Bud was the best neighbor that we could have ever had. Always the gentlemen, caring , generous and always willing to help with anything. We enjoyed many conversations with Bud when he was out and about. We were always so happy to be in his company. He was so fortunate to have his loving wife Kay take such good care of him so that he could be comfortable at home. We will miss you Bud. You will always be remembered!

    I wish to extend my condolences to the entire James family.
    I want to express my thanks for my Uncle Bud, who was a veteran of the United States Army. I appreciate him for his courage and service to our country, while he served in the battle zone of Korea.
    I have happy memories of Uncle Bud. He was very enjoyable and fun to chat with.
    May each of you have many happy memories of Bud and cherish those memories in your hearts.
    May God bless, comfort and give each of you strength during this time of loss.

    With sincerest sympathy,

    Brock and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I know what a difficult time this is for you. But, may you have peace and comfort at this time knowing how much he cared for you. He served his country well. I remember him telling of coming home from war and getting off the plane and kneeling down to kiss the ground. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Dallas, Denise and family,

    I am sorry for your loss. When I read about someone like this, I take pause to reflect on just how many hearts and souls he touched. I also give thanks for his life, him choosing to protect the Country I get to enjoy, and also for his passion and service to my surrounding communities, making them a better place. These days, you just don’t hear about many that CHOOSE to live their life in such a manner. My prayer is that your family finds peace in this otherwise difficult time and that you take comfort in knowing he is resting in the arms of our Heavenly Father.

    I am so sorry for your loss. This is keith and linda and I just heard about buds passing. He was a good friend and I am a better person for knowing him. He always made me laugh and was always a joy to be around. I am sure he is sitting at the left hand of jesus probably putting a smile on his face. Our thoughts go out to you kay and his family.
