Terry has so many memories! Most of them from when they would go to the woods on Friday after school with food and drink packed and reappear sometime on Sunday. They had some sort cabin and a wood stove and enjoyed campfires. There’s always a ‘Butch’ story to be shared. I just remember he had a great smile and twinkling blue eyes. I loved his laugh. He was a good guy and a good neighbor. Terry drove him to the hospital the night you were born, Sandy and he helped name you. Those two were like brothers for a long time. Yong Ye, we are so sorry he was taken from you so soon. God bless you all and may he rest in eternal peace!
