    Dear Betty and Bud:

    I have been thinking about you often during these last few months. I am so glad you found Caring Bridge. It is an excellent way to keep all informed and in touch. Sincere good thoughts are being sent your way from us and from many, many people.

    Heh Bud and Betty,
    I will keep you in my prayers.  Having been there I know that they are needed.  I have been wondering how you were doing and am glad to get a status.

    Howdy Bud!  I'm not too happy to hear that you haven't been feeling well.  IT SUCKS!  Hang in there.....I feel certain that you are receiving the best care available.  To the family....hang on tight!

    Hey Biggie, 

    we're pulling for you and can't wait to have another party where you'll be our better-than-professional photographer!

    Baby Kingsley still has to meet the Kilburn clan in person!

    Hello Bud!

    I just wanted to let you know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I know you are being well taken care of by the Kilburn Bunch!
    One question...where can I get some of those glasses you are wearing in all those photos??? You are quite the "fashion icon" in the eyewear department!

    Budly -

    I'm thinking about you (a lot!) and am glad to know that Betty and your kookie kids (hey, they know I love them) are there to keep you cheered and loved and to run interference with the doctors.  I, too, send my love!

    I have been waiting and wondering what has been going on and how Bud was feeling!!--And how all of you were doing! Having been in your position, in the past, I know how tough it is!! I have been and will continue to keep praying for your family!!  I do have a question---Does any one REALLY know him as Ralph Stanley???!! I mean REALLY?
