    It has been said that you cannot choose the family you are born into, but you can choose your friends. I first met Bobby Butler on a softball field and my first impression was that this man was a student of the game and he seemed to glide through the air when he ran. In recent times Bob and I would talk about his struggles and we would pray together. So my friend I want you to know that I am saddened by your passing and that you were loved by me and your many teammates. God Bless and care for you until we meet again. Kevin J. McGuire
