I wanted to share this memory because it stands so much out in my head! As my son son would say back in 1922 (2003) I was sitting in the kitchen and Pop “Butch” said to me “you look like you need a hug Heather!?” I followed w/ ya know I do. I had a “really” bad few weeks & he probably knew or heard but didn’t mention it! Just offered me a hug! Then we had a beer together. Lol it was a hard time in my personal life & he was the ONLY person that didn’t talk about it, just offered me a hug. I have MANY memories, but this one stands out the most. He’s a great man & will be missed for sure! ❤️
With Love- Heather
