Butch-my memories of you go back to when I was a little kid and we would visit you in Chalmers. You older cousins always seemed to lead such an exciting and charming life. As the years progressed, I saw you less frequently but you always had a smile and a kind word. Thanks for trying to help Mike by providing him with a job, for sharing your hearty laugh at family gatherings, and forgiving your time and attention to Mom in her final years.

To the Meyers family: The world has lost a treasure, my prayers and kind thoughts are with you.
