In honor of Butch Jackson

Thirty-eight years ago, my best friend was murdered by people he knew. They left his body, and he wasn’t found for three days. I notified his mother, who lived 3,000 miles away. I’ll never forget the sound of her scream. No one was found guilty of the crime. To this day I miss my buddy. Love you, Butch!
