Sending sincere condolences to all of the Carr family. My Dad, Larry, worked with Bud at Hagerstown Lumber, and I also have fond memories of seeing Helen and Bud having lunch at the Legion on Northern Avenue. It was always nice to see her when I came in to have my hair cut at Silhouettes. We hope that you will find peace and comfort in your memories of happy times. Merrill & Vickie (Martin) Layton
