    I am so sorry to hear of Butch's death. He was a good person , always friendly and many times was available to help me with problems in my house. It was not mentioned but he was an excellent plumber and always willing to help.

    I have such fond memories of Butch sitting at my families table visiting while eating calms and crabs. I always smile when I think of him pushing me on the swing. Prayers to your family on your loss. Heaven gained another angel.

    I'm so sorry to hear of Butch's passing. I was expecting to see him at the cousins dinner at Mary Ann's House in December and was disappointed not to see him.
