I am so sorry to hear about Bud's passing. I believe I am kin to you all - my grandparents were Joseph & Nancy Edington. Tony, Sarah & Murt came to our Edington reunion in Calico Rock in 1991, and I came to Bud & Rhunia's 5oth anniversary celebration in Mtn. View. I would like for one of your family to contact me please - my phone number is 870-291-3720. My deepest sympathy to all of you.
