Uncle Butch, I am sorry I didn't get to come see you before you had to leave.
My uncle was always a gentle and kind person. A soft spirit. With an excellent smile. I will miss our coffee visits and most of all, your hugs.
God Bless you Lana and your family. I pray God makes you strong in this time and blesses you with peace. Tammy and I are here.
