    Papa Butch our hearts are broken as we say goodbye to you. Then I smile & think – All your/our family in heaven that are saying Welcome Home. We will miss you beyond words. I think of my Mom & you sitting on the front porch yelling at cars, branding them as they came by or calling over a neighbor . When Cindy & I would get home there was Always a crowd on the lawn. I think of Casey jumping in your minivan not wanting to get out as long as you were in there. Sooo many wonderful memories to think of! Thank you for being you! Nana Cindy, Michael, Stacy, Lisa, & family we feel your pain, your in our prayers & our Love is with you today, the days ahead & Always. We hold our precious memories of you closer. Much Love
    Lauralee aka Laura, among other names you’ve called me over the years ❤️
