I grew up in Dover Plains. My parents were Otis and Anita Butler. I have very fond memories of eating at the Pines . My favorite was Chicken in a Basket. Thanks for being a big part of a happy childhood.

My deepest sympathy to Florence's family, Your Mother /Grandmother was a very caring woman and you are Blessed by having her for so many years. We were friends for many years and she and Ralph were my daughter JoAnn's God parents. I always looked forward to visiting with them after I moved to Florida. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Rest in peace Flo.
