Letter: Butch and Gayle Rogers

Mary Bardin writes:
This couple has been in Columbia spotlight for years. Both are distinguished,kind and compassionate , well respected couple. Butch has coached both of my children. One year, for some reason, all the boys on the team were from single parent homes with none to coach them. Me and another mom decided we would take a punch for the team (yea right). However, Butch decided he would do a better job and took the team.

A sport that is not mentioned is billiards. When my daddy died, all of us moved in with Aunt Irene, next door to Butch and his grandparents. My brother was a little country boy, didn't really know anyone. Aunt Irene put a billiards table in the basement. Butch and Bobby spent long hours trying to become pros. Both were competitive, but not sure if ever became pros. It did however lead to a lifetime friendship. Bobby is deceased, but his name still lovingly comes up when I see Butch. --Mary
