    So sorry to hear of McCue’s passing. I am John Butler’s neice. John and his wallpapering partner always gave my family their special “taillight guarantee”. They were a good pair and my family enjoyed many laughs with them. Now they are back together again entertaining the rest of their cronies in heaven. May he rest in peace.

    CIL and family: May we ALL remember the great times we had with you and BUD, like the time in aruba when I asked him about the book he was reading and when he got thru explaining about the book, I said: BUD, DIDN’T YOU READ THAT BOOK LAST YEAR? BUD STARTED TO LAUGH AND SAID NO WONDER THIS DAMN BOOK WAS SO FAMILIAR. YOUR RIGHT DAVE I DID READ IT LAST YEAR… I never let him forget it. What a good guy he was, and how he loved you CIL and his family and thousands of friends. Karen and I are better people having known you and BUD. ARUBA will never be the same without him. His getting up REAL EARLY to put the towels out at the pool, and ALL the DOLLAR BILLS HE WON FROM JIM DOLAN playing cribbage. how he smiled when he whipped JIM and took the dollar bill. To you CIL our love, thoughts and prayers. Make notes of the fun times with bud and refer to them when you have a sad day. MAY HE REST IN PEACE. GOD BLESS YOU BUD. YOU WERE ONE IN A MILLION.

    Donna and I wish to offer our deepest sympathies to Buddy’s family. Buddy leaves a wonderful legacy…a kind and gentle person, a loving and caring husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Buddy was a close friend of mine for years…a person who could always be depended upon. He will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known him. If only those care-free and fun-filled days when we were young, could be relived.

    May God keep him close to His heart forever.

    To a wonderful friend. It was a blessing to have known you. A truly genuine and thoughtful human being with a kind and gentle heart. We shared many laughs with Van and you taught me how to stay positive. Miss you

  15. Richard & Mary Dowd says:

    When we first met Bud he described a mutual friend of ours as one of the finest men he’d ever met. Can think of no better words to say what an impressive, thoughtful & kind man Bud was. He truly was one of the finest. Cil, everyone here misses you both. You all remain in our prayers. Sincere sympathy.

  16. eileen nutter says:

    A friendly familiar face when I first started as a letter carrier almost 30 years ago. I enjoyed being included with his family in volunteering at Thanksgiving serving food to the elderly, although he gave me the peas to scoop out (knowing I hated anything to do with peas)and Christmas in April. He was very dedicated to his postal customers including getting checks to customers when storms kept us from doing most of our route. If I can be considered half as good at my job as George I will feel very successful. My husband Jim and I pray for comfort to the McCue family.

  17. Debbie & Charlie Hurley says:
