    One. Of my greatest memories looking back to my foreman at Sammis plant turbine crew. What a privilege it was to work for Bud . This man actually appreciated the work his crew did. Loved to joke and have fun , the work got done and he couldn’t thank you enough. I visited Bud and his wife in Carrollton , so very appreciative they both were. I’m very sorry , God bless you Bud , you will always b in heart .
