    I am so sorry to hear about Butch. No one has heard anything from him for so long. In case you don’t remember me, your Dad is my cousin. Your grandmother was my Aunt Jane. I am Annabelle’s youngest daughter. Hope you are all doing fine. Please tell your Mother I said hello. Again, I am sorry. It is very hard to lose a parent.
