Rest in Peace, Butch

So today, my neighbor informed me that he read a friend of mine had passed away.

I was quite shocked.  Butch and I have not spoken in a long while, but I was thinking of him during the summer. I had emailed his mother, Sharlote, only a week ago because I couldn't shake the need to contact her.  I didn't understand why, until today.

This man was one of the most influential people that I have ever known personally.  He was one of the people involved in my first role playing experience.

Butch was incredibly intelligent, sincere and somehow stubborn at the same time.  He was brilliantly imaginative, an amazing artist and an armchair philosopher.  He made me laugh many times when all I felt like doing was crying.  Butch had a rough life and yet he always left people feeling better after speaking with him for just a few minutes.

I can honestly say that I would have never become a writer or even a gamer if he had not been a part of my life.  I owe he and his brother, my friend Dentye so much.

Rest in peace, my friend.  I will miss you more than you could have ever known.
