Bev, You know how much I loved and respected Butch. My family and I will keep you and your family in our prayers. I'm so sorry for your loss. Reading the notice of Butch's passing reminded me of the time that he made the bug shield for my truck that had a picture of a smurf on it. He will be greatly missed. Sincerely, Bob and family
