    Aunt Connie, Billy and Susie,
    We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Uncle Butchy was one of a kind. I always remember him laughing and teasing everyone, the baby brother spoiled by his four sisters! A new angel to watch over you, he was such a blessing in everyone’s life! Hugs to all of you. . .
