04/10/18 - Myrna Moore Laque forwarded the picture and sent the following note: This was the spring of our senior year. I had taken my camera to school to take miscellaneous shots of friends...feeling sentimental about graduating, I guess. Butch was always up for anything...lots of stories could be told!

Stay Young My Friend 

We all need to read this one over and over until it becomes part of who we are.


1. Try everything twice.
On one woman's tombstone she said she wanted this epitaph: "Tried everything twice. Loved it both times!" 

2 Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down. (Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)

3. Keep learning: 
Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever... 
Never let the brain get idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.' And the devil's name is Alzheimer's! 

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with HIM/HER.

6. The tears happen: Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. LIVE while you are alive. 

7. Surround yourself with what you love: whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge. 

8. Cherish your health:
If it is good, preserve it. 


If it is unstable, improve it. 
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county, to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is. 

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity. 

11. Forgive now those who made you cry. You might not get a second chance.

Remember! Lost time can never be found.

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. 

"Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil - it has no point." 

Billy Graham
