Even as I’m shedding tears for your loss, I’m honored to remember one of the best people I ever met even in a short period of time. I miss you calling me MA at all time. I know you’ve always been a fighter even till I witness you take your last breathe. I believe you are with the Lord rejoicing and singing Hallelujah. May your soul forever Rest In Peace Butch.
