Joyce and family, so sorry for your loss. My sisters and I spent our Friday morning breakfast reminiscing about Pete and Margarite and their family and Delbert being more like a son than a farm hand. And playing cards and drinking Pepsi on rainy days. May God grant you His peace that surpasses our human understanding. Linda Lay Bedwell, Julianna LayDaniels and Karen Lay Severs.

What a good picture of "Bud", that's how I remember him.  "Bud" was a family friend before he was my best friend's husband.  Lots of good memories.  Teresa Walraven Brown
