Larry. He was one of the kindest most gentle spirited persons I have ever known. There was no one like him. He was so generous to all, and he kept trying through all obstacles which showed his true spirit. He had a wonderful work ethic and he loved children so much.......Im a little mad at him right now for not telling me he was slipping away! I so wanted to be there for him. I think we all didn't want to believe it. The world won't be as good of place without Larry Butler. Sad sad day. I'm so sad.
