    I have many great memories with Bud, Betty, Susan, and Charlene. I remember the Summers eating the noon meal with them sitting around the table being part of the family. Bud had such a good positive outlook and always had that little grin on his face. Betty and the girls always had a delicious meal for us.
    I used to really hate it when we go to the field to dig thistles when it was too wet to do anything else.
    I still remember the time that Bud, trusted me take a load of hogs to st.joe with Susan. So many good summer days, I would love to have them back today, and be 17 again.
    This one really hurts! There are no words!
    Prayers to you Betty Susan Charlene and family.
