Other Comments:

I lost my best friend Patrick H. Butler. He passed away the end of July after a bitter battle with cancer. He was a good friend who probaly knew me better then I know myself. He was always full of fun, compassion for his shipmates and family, but he also had a stern hand when things needed to be done.  The team we became was something of a calvin and hobbs type of thing, He always pulled me back when it wasnt' safe and pushed me in when it was. We held each other up he had my back and I had his. The year we made chief was something else. They rated one PR and one AME that year and we both made it from the same squadron.   I wonder what would have become of us had one of us not. He would have smiled and said next time. I of course would have pouted I will miss him, He was so full of life. He honestly cared I trusted him without doubt. If he told you it was so then it was. I have never met a man i admired more. Fair winds and following sails my friend. God Bless and rest in piece we will miss you
