Elizabeth (and John ,),so sorry to hear of your fathers passing… we are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers at this time. It was nice to know that your dad lived to be in his 100th year.

Elizabeth, Phil and family, Our sincere condolences on the passing of your father. Knowing your family, I am sure he cherished every moment.
May he rest in peace.

Elizabeth and Phil, Our deepest condolences on the passing of your father.,, I’m sure he lived a full and honest life, keep his memories alive….

The sweetest man! My Mom spent her last years at Tiffany Village, just down the hall from Mr. Budden. He was such a sweet and gentle man and they sort of looked out for each other. He would always push her water glass in closer and remind her to drink lots of water. I often brought in lemon bars and he’d always tell me they reminded him of lemon meringue pies, a favourite sweet from his younger years! May his gentle soul rest in peace!

The Budden Family: We were saddened to read of Reg’s passing. I have many pleasant memories of visiting his home with my father on the crossroads. They were great friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

T0 Phil & family; our sincere condolences on the passing of your Dad. May all your precious memories console you in the days ahead. May his gentle soul Rest In Peace.

Mr. Budden was a very gentle soul. Going to miss sitting down and hearing his stories of when he was back home, and working. It was an honor to have known him, care for him, just to be in his company was a smile on ones face everyday, I know he would put a smile on my face everyday. When he smiled he light up a room…he loved his little drinks of red wine I’d bring to his room every evening after supper…. A.k.a cranberry juice!!! His answer..”thats a good drop of stuff..its not too strong”. God bless you sweet angel..its been a pleasure to have known you….

The Budden Family,

I was saddened to read about your Dad’s passing. I remember well the Davis & Budden store in Dunville. Unfortunately none of us can live forever, but your Dad lived to be a hundred. That’s remarkable! Cherish the memories & celebrate his life.
