I\’m sorry for your loss. I didn\’t know Butch too long but we got to know each other at the Alzheimer\’s meetings held twice a month. We always sat next to each other so we could carry on a conversation. I miss my partner at the Alzheimer\’s meetings. Ken Carter

Is forever and always a part of you.
