I was recently talking with an old friend I knew when I worked in the airline industry. I immediately thought about Bud; I worked for Continental Airlines in Newark with Bud. I was a "kid" from California new to the New York area. Bud was like a big brother. I will always remember the Thanksgiving in MA., and I still remember how his family made me feel at home and I won't for get "potato stuffing" !. Even though our lives took different roads, I will always remember Bud. RIP
