  • One of our favorite people ever! He always told Matt he was sorry he was married to a Chiefs fan. Anything to give me a hard time! He tried to act hard but was a wonderful person. I always told him deep down he was a social butterfly. From there on everytime I saw him he’d say “There’s Butterfly!” I would recant “No you are Butterfly” and he would just laugh! He always loved the song Long Haired Country Boy so I will play it only for him!

    Spent many days at Larry’s Mom and Dads house and played when we were kids.
