Oh, the joys of yesteryear and the sorrows of our present. Somehow I did not think that I would live to see the demise of Dear Butter Compton. He has surprised many by his early departure. Condolences to the entire Compton Family in the loss of a good man. He is now in GOD's arms. With Love and Respect, Charles Lowe
