Mrs. Linda I was truly saddened to hear of Butch's transitioning. I Loved Butch! He was very instrumental in my accepting my Ostomy. He always encouraged me and I will never forget him saying "you can do this De, if an old man like me can do it you can too." He chuckled and I did too and when things got hard I would always remember his chuckle and hear him saying what he said. Butch was always so kind and loving. He was an inspiration to us us. Mrs. Linda you ALWAYS were a pillar of strength for him and I'm sure you are being a pillar for the children and the rest of the family. I decree God's abundant Peace be upon you and your family. I love you, De
