    To Bud, always my friend.

    Thank you for your selfless hours of caring, for always going above and beyond what the job called for, for caring about the person first and mostly for just being "Bud".

    Bud Miltenburger is a special breed of person, we don't see them very often in today's society. Most people are too busy, to involved in other things or, in reality just don't care about someone else's needs. Bud was and is never too busy to help with a phone call (now) or a special visit. He many times put is feelings, incl physical, aside just to be there for someone. Yes, he was a police detective but above that he is a friend.

    I worked with Bud with my search dogs, in particular my K9 Sweetz. We spent so much time talking about special cases he involved Sweetz and I in. Bud always believed, when others didn't, in the capabilities of my K9s.

    Thank you Bud for allowing time for me when my husband had passed and putting aside your suffering. You are greatest and are always my friend.
