well my butchie i am having a hard time believing that it has been almost a year since you left us so suddenly on oct 17 2011 afterall i had just talked to you a few minutes before you passed on. we were making plans for our anniversary on wednesday. i remember that day so vividly every little detail it seemed so unreal, like a dream, but it wasnt , it was very real. although you had been failing, and we knew the end was close, it never crossed my mind just how close you have been in heaven almost a year, with jesus, and friends and family that were waiting for you. now one single day goes by that you are not thought of or spoken about. sometimes it seems as if you will walk in the door and ask "what the devil is going on here" so many things have happene this year, i know you know cuz you are watching and looking over al of us. sometimes i feel your presence very strongly. i thought this would get easier as time has gone on, but it has not. you were apart of my life since i was 16 years old , sometimes it feels like i have lost an arm or leg you were so much apart of me. we have all tried to honor your memory, fulfill your wishes the way you wanted. sometimes we falter, but we get up an try again there have been so many things this past year that wish you were here to see and be part of. geena signing her letter of intent to play ball next year in college at barton community college, our newest granddaughter elyse is a beautiful little girl and she loves your aphgan you got from the cancer center, little micheal lost his first tooth, jayde is playing the violin this year and leah is just as pretty and smart as ever sometmes when she looks at your picture on your obituary she says oh look at papa he is so cute micheal tiff and kids finally got the house of their dreams you have been there before it is where jake simmos lived down in squirrel hollow as you used to put it. they have the whole house kids have so much room to play and he has a garage you would love your iroq and your race car live there. phillip is my helper he takes care of me and as you know we moved it was to hard to stay in our house tooo many memories

somedays are harder than others but i dont think the void in my heart will ever completly heal you touched so many lives while you were here on earth. i love you my butch i miss you and wish you were by my side we had so many things to do yet together. and although i hate cancer and it took you from me, i wouldnt trade our last year together for anything. we became closer than ever before. my ony wish is that our family can heal from wounds and we all can become closer. i listen to your voice at night in that birthday card you recorded and i keep your jeans you had on that last day under my bed nothng has been touched everything is just like it was a year ago. watch over us and help to guide us if you can

i love you my husband and i miss you terribly but i cannot and do not wish you were back here with us. to see you suffer and struggle was so very hard you were/are one of the strongest men i have known and i am such a better person for having had you in my life for so many years

tell my dad mother anwain grandpaps damon delois elaine everyone hello from all of us still on this earth. you will never be forgotten your family and friends carry memories of you always

i will be coming to see you wednesday until then i love you baby

your wife jan

Butch was my 'cool' cousin. He was soft spoken, with a sharp wit, a quick tongue, and that beautiful smile. I knew him as a man who cared for his family and was loved and adored by so many. He will not be forgotten.
