    Kilburn tribe,
    I am so sorry and so sad. Bud was one of the funniest and most talented people I have known. Growing up with you guys, I always looked forward to seeing him and laughing at his silliness. My mom and dad dearly loved him.
    I am so grateful for all the family photos he took of us over the years. I will never forget him.
    May your hearts be full of love and comfort in your memories. You are all blessed to have him in your lives.
    He was truly one of a kind.

    I know that we never lose the people we love, even to death.  Their love leaves an imprint, and in Bud's case, a very big imprint, in our memories.  They continue to make a difference in every thought and decision we make. 

    May your heart and soul find peace and comfort during this sad time.           
                                                    Love to All

    I want to add my thoughts and prayers to all those already sent your way. Bud was such a jovial, kind and warm man. He was quick to laugh and made me feel loved even though I wasn't blood related. He will certainly be missed by everyone whose life he touched even if it was only in a small way. I love you all!

    I hope that he slides into his next expression with his favorite drink in one hand and his favorite camera in the other.  I send to all of you my deepest condolences and wish Bud all the love this universe can muster.  Keep the wagons circled and feed on love.  I send much to you all.
