Butch, you know I never called you by your given name, I'm so sorry I can't be there right now . My heart aches for you now. I was only 11 when you were born but you were my first nephew and you were always with me no matter where I went even when I met George. You will always be in my heart and sadly missed. Love you Butch, Aunt Rosanna.
