Just wanted to extend condolences from Bruce and I. Chuck and Bobby were part of our Cobb County lives many years ago. We are so sorry to hear about your dad.

Uncle Butch, I remember vividly when you and Dad both had garages in Kennesaw. I can't recall a day that we didn't stop at your garage or you came down to ours. You always were a much larger influence on me than you will ever know! You were a great and talented man. You will be missed dearly and while I can't be at your life celebration, my entire trip out will have thoughts of you and the ones who have preceded you. I'm sure they have certainly been waiting on you with outstretched arms and smiles of love.

Pawpaw, I will never forgot the life’s lessons you taught me or the childhood memories that we shared between hunting and horse back riding. You were the best Pawpaw ever and an even more great grandpa to the boys. I miss you and love you so much.
