Greetings to all the "Lindbergs" - Tim, Pam, Judy and Wendy. I'm very sorry for your loss. I haven't seen any of you for years but still have many good memories of Bud, and of course Tia Mom too. I remember going catfishing and playing ping pong with Bud, as well as riding in his old car and truck. I hope each of you will find comfort in remembering all the good times you shared with your dad and mom from the past. May Bud rest in peace. Take care.
Dear Judy, Wendy, Pam, Tim and all the grandchildren. I am so sorry for your loss. The loss of a father is so difficult. We were so lucky to have our fathers as long as we did, but that makes loosing someone who's loved you your entire life that much more challenging. I have so many wonderful memories of our family get togethers and many of those memories include your mom. We will all miss him, cherish our memories and find some comfort in knowing that so many of our loved ones are together again. Know you have my sympathy and my love.
So sorry for your loss. I have great and funny memories of my Uncle Bud. He was a fun guy. I always enjoyed going to see all of you as we grew up. I even spent my honeymoon with Auntie Tia and Uncle Bud and it was great Uncle Bud took my husband fishing and I went shopping with Auntie Tia. I love you all and my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
