Although we did not know Bud, we are working with his sister, Sheila, and have heard heartfelt stories, so we feel like vicarious friends. We share his love for animals and are sending our gift to the Carlisle Area Dog Parks. Please accept our sincere condolences and our warmest thoughts to Buds family (and his family of friends) at this time. The OPA office at Bloomsburg University
