    So sorry for your loss. It’s been many years since I have seen Butch. I have great memories of when he lived in Rockford Illinois with us for awhile. Peace to your family.

    Butch was my little buddy, I loved him like a brother. We had good times working out at Camp Robinson and hunting together down south was the highlight of my year. He was a hoot. I will miss you my little buddy. Joe
