Oh Butch from the first time you & Cindy came into the store I fell in love with you both & knew we would be friends forever. Although I didn't get to see you both as much as after I left that love never faded. I hope that wherever you are that you found your Cindy's soul & you two are together again. Thank you for all the laughs throughout the years. You will be missed by so many. My heart goes out to each of your family members. Keeping all of them in my prayers. -Tanya Metzler
