Condolence & Memory Journal

Jerry, I'm so very sad and sorry about Butch's passing! Our family called him Butch, but on FaceBook i thought he was known as Al. No matter. I had gotten reacquainted with him through FB and enjoyed our communications!!! I see donations are made to the Lung Association. Did he have lung cancer? I didn't know. I'm so very sad! He loved my brother and my dad of that I'm sure! I had not seen him in many many years! I'm sorry for that! May God Bless and keep you during this time! Always, Cindi Burt Roy (FB: Cynthia Burt Roy)
