Ole gal, we're gonna miss you! 50 years of memories of you. The only time I ever saw you cry was when we were riding bicycles, you hit a hole and wrecked, bit into your tung. It was bleeding so bad it scared you. You were there for me so many times. A true friend. I will never forget you.

I have a lot of great memories of Donna Jo(D.J.) At one time a cool but crazy sister-in-law. She could out-fish just about anyone in her family, maybe except her daddy (Chicken) Glenn Butler. You will me missed, but not forgotten. See ya later on the other side of this life. My prayers and thoughts to the entire family Momma Sue, girls, and others. Billy Wayne and Donna Tucker.(Bossier City, La.)
