    Bud was a good friend. Roger and he would always meet at the post office, and have a visit, sharing news, how the family was, what was new in Westbrook, etc. He will be missed, but now is at peace with the Lord. God bless the memory of our friend, Ivan (Bud) Carlson.

    When God calls his children home, his angels come to take them by the hand, leading them along a shining path into a place of peace and light. Home at last, they see the Lord open his arms, welcoming them with a smile into the everlasting joy and peace that is his Love. As the Lord welcomes your loved one home to perfect peace, may he also comfort you and lead you through your sorrow. I still remember the card parties our parents played at your farm with all the others that now, will be welcoming him home. Our deepest condolences.

  3. Judy, Jan & Jo & families;
    What a gentleman your dad was and what a great family.! We have enjoyed growing up and growing old together. It
    was great that I got to see Bud, Jan & Jo when I was back in Westbrook on the 15th & 17th of August.
    I had not seen Bud in 6 years and as soon as he saw me he knew who I was. What a great visit we had.
    He is now at peace and united once again with his beloved loraine and he and Edgar & Avie are dancing with the angels.
    God’s peace,
