Overview

Multiple Sclerosis weakened Budd's body till he no longer could walk. His sense of humor remained despite his loss of a physically active life. Clergy and members of Lovers Lane United Methodist Church in Dallas, Texas encouraged Budd to share his humor, faith, and love of life through a column in the church's weekly newspaper.
Enjoy this excerpt from one of Budd's letters.
Dear Budd...
Because I happen to know that you have a wonderful sense of humor, along with being a most dedicated Christian, I wish that you would take the opportunity to point out to others (particularly, the young) that following Christian precepts does not necessitate either a long face or a forced cheeriness. How about a plug for laughter?
Fondly, B. H.

Dear B. H.
You have done three outstanding things in one letter. You spoke a very kind word of affirmation to me, about me, and therefore for me. That kind of concern is appreciated. You have raised, in my thinking, a most important issue for any person who hopes to live a meaningful life in this day. You have done a good job offering a logical answer to the predicament. I agree - life is not all smiles, or all frowns, or all "can't do's" or "don't do's." Rather, life is a combination of yes and no, love and hate, war and peace, friend and foe... About laughter - I guess, if I've never really cried, then I can't really laugh either.
Seriously, Budd
