Penny NicolI am really just stunned that the world has lost Bud. Wendy, you and Bud were a fantastic couple, and had such a wonderful life together, it's just hard to imagine he is gone. I still can't believe it. I remember working with Bud and he was always one of my favorites at work. Bud was one of the kindest, most thoughtful, sweet natured people you could ever find. I remember him up to his armpits in cornstarch, on a mogul breakdown - with a HUGE amount of stress due to mounting cost by the minute, and he would always be cool and handling the situation in a truly professional way. He was so special, I am so sad to hear of his passing. I know this is just an incredibly hard time for you. The only thing I can think of to say, is that living with an illness being so difficult, at least he is at peace now. Time will make it easier, but until then, know that I am thinking of you and Bud every day, and hoping and praying that you find comfort during this difficult time. I will always remember Bud, I haven't seen him for many years but I still remember him smiling with his hands in his pockets while we shared a joke. I will see him again in heaven, of that I am sure.
Anna Marie A.Dear Tammy and family, I'm so sorry for your loss. There are no words to lessen the pain, but I hope that you will find solace in knowing that you have friends who have you in their thoughts and prayers at this time. HUGS! -AMA

Kim CookSo sorry for your loss. I knew Bud and Wendy for most of the 30 years I worked at McCormicks. I remember how great Bud was to work for and his wonderful sense of humour. He used to give people nicknames if he thought theirs didn't fit them. Mine was Molly and it still makes me smile to think of that. I was fortunate to be able to talk to him a few times after the plant closure as he knew my neighbours. He will be missed!
