Lex and I send our love and sincere sympathy.
I’ll always cherish the memories of you all visiting and know how much we all loved you! Rest In Peace!
Mr.DeMond was a strong but gentle soul. I had the privilege of meeting him & getting to know him over the years since we had a common tie. We’re both Veterans and share the same last name “DeMond” ( Maiden name; Lezlie DeMond)
He loved his Family & Country. We often swapped stories of our military experiences and then of course how we were related.
He had that famous chiseled chin, jawline, and smile not to mention charm. I will definitely miss seeing and caring for my fellow comrade at JC. Bud see ya later?❣️
Xoxo Your Favorite ER Nurse
A wonderful man. He was always there for my mom when she was ailing. He will be truly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. God bless you Bud!
Uncle Bud miss your laugh and hugs already love you dearly xoxo
