We’ve lost another Winterburn “pioneer” and a really great guy! We have so very many good memories of Bud & Margie through the years. We live in the same Crescent and when I chatted with them last week, Bud had a big smile for me and told me he was feeling “great”! And that’s how we’ll remember him. Our sincere sympathy to Margie and his wonderful family. – Bonnie & Gary Schwindt
