I met Butch in 1996 when he had his last Workshop in Nashville. Pictures appeared in Bluegrass Unlimited with Bill Monroe, Ronnie McCoury, Roland White. We had a geat time nothing but mandolins. What a great guy and instructor. I still have all the originals from my Camcorder. Butch asked me to make a composite of the 4 days. I did and sent it to him. We hit it off great. He would ask me about musicians up in Virginia such as Earl Taylor who I knew well. What an empty feeling I have now. Losing Butch and Dempsey Young. My prayers are with Sinclair and her family. God bless you. Butch knew I was a christian in '96. We Talked a lot. See you in Heaven Butch, Jim Sullivan
