Freeper Budge passed away
1/2/2011 | sweetliberty

Posted on 02/01/2011 2:50:30 PM PST by sweetliberty

I received a message from a good friend of Budge's telling me that he had passed away either last night or this morning. I don't know any particulars yet. I got an email from him just yesterday. I know Budge had lots of friends on FR and was active for many years and attended numerous events. I thought y'all would want to know.

Rest in peace Budge - you will be missed.

I’ll never forget our freep of Hillary at her book signing in Blytheville.

I complained about my typos once, and he showed me a pic of his hands.

You're welcome... until today, I didn't know the kind of cards Budge had been dealt in life regarding his physical being. His soul burned bright and really came out in his spirit, and that impression is just from a cyber relationship. I'd like to take the liberty of imagining that a personal relationship with Budge was something really special.

I find his last post interesting. It would be significant for a Christian I think.

I can see why- Budge had an indomitable spirit! Thank you for the pictures. They are certainly a boost in one’s ability to reminisce about Budge.

FR has lost another sail that will be difficult to replace. May God rest his soul and comfort his loved ones. Thanks for posting sweetliberty.

Considering the injuries he suffered in his youth... I'd also say that he was a man of true grit.

Ah — yes! Those were some days! We were all different, all ages, and from all over. And we were “ONE”. Cherished memories! And they come rushing back when we hear of such a Freeper as Budge. RIP, FRiend!

Ah, Budge. We fought the good fight didn’t we?

You left the country a better place for having lived in it. Thank you.

My husband and I only met Budge in person a few times but he so impressed us with his outgoing and cheerful manner. He was also quite intelligent. He told us the same as he told SL, an accident involving his auto, maybe truck, and a train when he was around 20yrs old.

I didn’t know Budge but it’s always sad when a FReeper passes. From reading the comments here, he was a real trooper - - as a FReeper and as a man.

Prayers for his family.

Prayers up for Budge and his family and friends. May our merciful Father in Heaven rest his soul and comfort family and friends, secure in the knowledge that they will have a joyous reunion one day.

RIP, Budge, you are beyond all of these earthly cares now, and you will be missed.

So glad to have known him... met him right here at FR. Other’s, were even luckier to have known him in person. Nice to see all of the kind words pouring in for Budge.

Hey Jim. Thought you’d want to know about Budge and add him to the FR memorial wall. His real name was Anthony Rahe.
