Condolence & Memory Journal

Much love and many prayers to the entire Gale family. Though I haven't seen you much over the past several years, you have been sorely missed; meetings just aren't the same without Bud and Cece, and I often find both of you in my thoughts; and I think this is the most wonderful obituary I have ever seen. You have captured his essence magnificently, and I'm sure he will be sorely missed by many. God Bless.

I knew both Budd and his wife through my grandparents, John and Janice Long. Budd was such a sweet man. He will be missed.

Cece, my deepest sympathies to you and your family. I know your journey over the last few years with Bud was similar to mine with Pat. I have reflected over the last year of the wonder of it all and today I only see God's grace. You an Bud had a wonderful journey together. You were very blessed.

condolences to the Budd family and especially his wife, who, along with Budd contributed so much to the art community. Painting with Budd was so enlightening. Other memories are of seeing him at Cosby Gardens
in Toledo with his great friend Chuck Jameson and talking about having an art guild in Adrian, one of both men's hopes. He always made me feel special, as he did so many others.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family, Cece. I wish I could be there tomorrow and hug you in person, but Carl is having surgery in Toledo. I'll be thinking of you. . . .
