Often times our cousins are our first friends and our best friends, this is the way it was with Butch and siblings, we would go to school together, play hide and seek in the old orchard together, ride our sleds down cemetery hill together, and play ball in the lower part of the cemetery . BUTCH will be missed but not forgotten. RIP
