Description from OK Jacki: We have lost 3 uncles in the last 60 days. Uncle Leo--who we affectionately called "Bud" was an ol bachelor with a quiet, gentle soul. His passion was gardening, and his favorites were Iris (of every color and type) and strawberries. Here's to you, Uncle Bud. Know your garden in heaven is even more beautiful than yours on this earth.

    What a touching tribute – - my best friend’s Dad is nicknamed “Bud” and is like an uncle to me. He will be 93 next month and I feel so grateful to still have him in my life. Am sure you will miss your Uncle Bud – - -

    Thank you, Chickies. You are the best! I went by the funeral home for visitation and there were purple bouquets all around. Very fitting. :-) He’s smiling right about now.
