In Loving Memory

My Dear Aunt Ann, John, Rachel, Ashley, Sarah & Alysia, Lauren, Jamie & Zander

  I am so sorry to hear about your wonderful husband, father & papa passing. I am so sad to hear about your loss. I have nothing but the greatest memories of him & growing up alongside your family. All of the family parties that we all got to attend at your first house, drinking the homemade root beer that Uncle Bud & Aunt Ann had waiting for us. Then all of us 19 cousins playing hide n go seek in the basement or red rover outside. Time would just be flying by & just when Rachel was teaching us a  new cheerleading routine it would be time to go home which we dreaded! The parties were often & we were all best friends. Ill never forget going over for one of Uncle Buds birthday parties &me & Stephanie bringing him a gerbil as a gift. Why we thought that was a good idea, I will never know. He laughed & gave him to Rachel for safekeeping. I think she named him trotter?! Lol. I have so many others but that story just showed what kind of person your Dad was. Loving & kind. I am so so glad I got to grow up with him in my life, he was such a great example to both me & my sister. I just wish my kids got to know him better too. I love all of you with all my heart. Just know me & my family are here for you & I will always have you all in my thoughts, heart & prayers. May God bless  & keep all of you, Uncle Bud is now in the V.I.P section of heaven with the other Lovatos  & loved ones saving our places..... I love you Uncle Bud!! Thank you for everything, you are the best & always will be. Give my Stephie  the biggest hug & kiss for me. Love to everyone else we love & lost. I'll see you somewhere in dream land Steph! I love you guys, lets keep in better touch okay Lovato family???

    Love Always & forever

         Jessica, Durell & our kids Gabriel, Jovanni, Ayrisse & Avianna Stephanie

Bud was always nice to me when I had a chance to talk to him. When Zander was little he used to tell me things his Papa Bud told him. (Usually words of wisdom!)  They had a close bond. I wish I could join your celebration of his life, but I won't be in town. God Bless you during this time!
