Today as I sit and remember all the many things that Butch has done for my family. His friendship with my dad was such a special bond. Butch will be terribly missed by so many, as he was one that truly cared about ppl. Butch and his entire family has been paramount in a close relationship with my family. My mind goes back over the years when Butch was there in the hours when my dad needed a best friend. I just can’t say enough about this genuine friend and I Pray for his family making special mention to his very special wife. A definite loss to this world.
