  2. To the Bouttte Family: I first met your Mom when I attended American Martyrs School with Bob. I just remember her being a very nice person. The last time I saw her was at my Mom’s funeral. She was so very thoughtful and said some very nice and comforting things about my Mom. I will always remember her for that. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. I know how hard it is to lose a Mom. May God bless all of you and comfort you at this time.
