I am so saddened to read that Buttons has passed. The last time I talked to him, he was telling me all about his boys and he was so proud of them .We are so sorry to lose another one of our class mates and he will be very missed by all his friends and family.

Niall, I am so sorry and my heart breaks for you.  You were one of my second grade students and I remember your dad would come by to check on you or to pick you up.  I know he loved his boys and did an outstanding job of making sure you went to school every day and had all your work done. Above all, I knew he loved you very much and wanted you to succeed in life.  I haven't seen or heard from you in several years but know that I remember you and hope you are okay. Love, Mrs. Dottie Depugh Adena second grade teacher and friend.
