I am sorry we will not be able to attend the visitation but we will be thinking of you and your family. Your dad played such an important part in my life. He not only gave me summer jobs but provided leadership and guidance in my development. Robyn and I spent so much time with your family, and we have such great memories.

John, Dee, Alice, Ben and Chris- I am so sorry for your loss! Bud was always so kind to the “Thompson girls” when we started in the propane industry. He not only welcomed us into the propane family, but the Bright family as well! Your description of Bud was perfect-the only word I could add is respected and he is by many! Sending much love - Laura

Mr. Bud was a very special person. We had the honor to get to work with him and also to get to know his wonderful family. I could be having a bad day at work and all he had to do was walk through the door and smile and make the entire day better. He was a true conservation farmer and a true leader but, most of all a wonderful person. Mr. Bud will be missed but, never forgotten. Prayers for his wonderful family
