There are just so many memories I can say about this incredible man right here. The one memory I will share about this guy is that he always wanted to take my money. "Uncle Butch let's play cards" "What you wanna play?" "Let's play tonk." " For .25 cent a hand?" "Uncle Butch I ain't playing cards with you for no .25 cents a hand." "Why not? YOU SCARED?" "Nah I ain't scared, I ain't got no money to gamble you with nor If I did, I'm not losing my money to you." "Well ask yo momma she got money." " Ha Ha Ha, ight Sandy, we can still play, but you know I still like to play for money." " I know." This is just one of the many memories I have with you and will forever cherish in my heart. Rest easy now Sargent, give big hugs and say hey to Gran, Uncle Jr, Aunt Doris, Uncle Art, Cousin Big Roger and your sister Aunt Arnora. Until we meet again, you will be missed, but never forgotten.
