My condolences to the Klinger family. We are never prepared no matter how long they've been ill. When I lived beside Bud on West Hale Street - he certainly had many interesting stories I used to love to sit and listen to him reminiscing about his life. He lived a very interesting life. He will always be known to me as the "Fox" - he used to call me Chicken Little so I started calling him the Fox. He will be missed by many and loved by all.
