    Butch was my best friend during our senior year at Van Horn. We lost touch over the years as I moved from place to place but I will always remember him as a true friend. I mourn the loss but I know, as you know, that the loss is only temporary. He’s in heaven waiting for the glorious reunion that is coming one day soon.
