    Dear Butchy

    Your brother’s death came as such a shock when Joe told me, and I extend my deepest sympathy to you and your family. He has left us at too young an age but will be remembered fondly for all that he accomplished in such a short life.

    It’s quite hard to say words that can ease the pain of the grieving heart. And It’s not easy to come up with the right wording to say how sorry I am for my friend Judy her daughter Nicole, son Tavian and her grandson Caleb, and for Skippy’s wife Patty. But from my heart Skippy was a wonderful funny crumpy guy that made me laugh everytime I was near him. I enjoyed spending time with him and the family and he will truely be missed. And if I can say anything that would help anyone from family to extended family remember the fun and happy times, and you will always have Skippy in your hearts and minds. Lov to all
