I've always heard my Dad refer to his Uncle Butch as Uncle Butch. Turns out his name is actually Larry (Lawrence Allen). It's funny the things you find out about people after they die. Mimi told me tonight that Butch used to cry and scream when he didn't get what he wanted, so his mom (Great Grandma Tressa) would stick him outside where he would cry and yell and make lots of noise. Then they dug out a basement for the house, so Great Grandma Tressa would put him in the basement when he cried. Soon after, he stopped crying because "nobody could hear him down there."
