When I met Bud at Oak Grove Bible Church he welcomed me with a smile and a hand shake. I told him my name was Tom. He than started calling me, not Tom, but Tommer. He always called me that and we became special friends.
I visited him at his home when he could not come to church any longer.
We laughed, we cried and most of all we prayed together. Bud will always have a special place in my heart.
I am so thankful he is with his Savior, Jesus, where he can go fishing again.
What a great man and he never failed to say he loved Jesus.

I remember being at the Lancaster's when Bud came too pick up Joyce for a date I thought if I could only grow hair like that, Joyce made a great choice , what a great guy.
In later years he really liked Linda's cherry pies at family event's.
Sorry for your family loss they don't make them any better.

Papa Selby we all miss you so much. I know you are pain free but we all thought we would have more time with you. I know you thought that too. Just a few weeks ago while eating fish with Kaliyah and Dayton you asked Dayton well bud do you think I\'ll be able to fish with you one last time. We will miss the camping trips with you and the Sunday lunches with you. The fishing with the boys, it will not be the same without you there. You were a great man loved and accepted all my kids as your great grandkids. Our hearts are broken without you!! We love you, go rejoice with your beautiful wife and my son. Until we meet again.
