    I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Butch’s passing. God Bless Him and all of you. He was always one of my favorite uncles. He always took the time to show you some attention and was always so funny and sweet to all of us kids. I used to love our visits with Uncle Butch and Aunt Mary and how he would always be doing handstands at the picnics. You were blessed to have him so long. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I love you. JO
