Life is so short, so random, and full of unexpected things. Today I got word that my dear neighbor died of a sudden heart attack. News of his passing hit me like a ton of bricks. He was too young. My children adored him and always looked for reasons to go over to talk to "Mr. Bud" about their day. This world is made up of people, crazy amazing and special folks with a story to tell to those willing to go out and listen. Bud was a very special guy and he is survived by his wife Kathy (a sweet woman who let me call her Sandy rather than correct me for a full 3 years mind you.....LOL). It is so very important to tell the people in your life everyday what they mean to you because, well, we never know when the day will come that we no longer have the opportunity to do so.
