Until I began compiling a genealogy of the family, I had never heard of "Bud" Schrot and hadn't seen Georgia since she was a baby. But while I put the statistics together, a man came through who gave his family a life, an identity, and an ethos that remains with the large family, the closeness and the tractor heritage. All those tractors lined up at the annual reunion became agricultural art and history. Although I did get reacquainted with Georgia (I feel close to her) I never had that pleasure with Bud Schrot. I wish I had. It's my loss. I know the family grieves their loss but I hope they remember how much they gained. Sincerest sympathy from the "oldest living Gudridge."

I always think of the car ride when Linda was born. It was fast and furious and Georgia kept saying hurry, hurry. And the beets that we shared together on the farm, beet soup, beet cassarole, beet pie - I mean everything was beets. Also, can't forget how Bud came to rescue when Fern and I were married. Needed a groomsman because one didn't show. Bud stepped in as that groomsman. He was a great brother-in-law and he was loved.

My cousin " Bud' was one person I will never forget. I remember so many things and occasions we shared , and when he would come visit us in Wyoming, he loved and hated the moutains as we showed them off to him and Georgia... I always called him my " flatlander" cousin.

To the Schrot Family, I would like to extend my sympathy to all of you. Bud has been one that I will never forget! I am one of the "Ed Caron" family and Bud and I shared the same birthdays! So many times we would get together and either talk about that special day for 2 special people and/or celebrate it once I was older. He would always remember me that way, saying "You are the one that has the same birthday as me!" May he now join his family and friends that have gone before him and whom will be waiting for him with open arms and show him the way into that heavenly kingdom. My love to all of you from the "Ed & Ag Caron" family.

There are so many memories I wouldn't knew where to start. He was my Godfather and the bestman at my wedding!He was my Dads best friend and cousin.We spent many many hours with the family either on the farm or at our house. One memory that stands out is the "cattle drive" from their old place to the one they live on now--what a day that was! Will miss you "uncle" Bud.
