Frank,
Is Walker "Bud" Mahurin still with us or has he passed?

Bud is still alive, although I believe his health is poor.

Neil,
Jim Goodson has moved back to the US, and lives near his son I believe. He is suffering from Alzheimer's to some extent. I believe when he travels now his son always goes with him; they were at the 4th FG reunion in Texas several years ago.
