I was delighted to open the Free Press on June 5 and see a wonderful picture of my friend Stan Butterworth, or Mr. B as I have called him since the time he and Mrs. B were our neighbours in Saskatoon in the 1960s (Manitoba veterans get medals, June 5).

Mr. B is as nice a man as anyone would want to meet, and that smile is his trademark -- and it's infectious. I have dinner with Mr. B nearly once a week with a couple of other friends my age (62), and Mr. B always says he's "running with the young dogs."

Mr. B is a wonderful man, and as a veteran is deserving of any accolades forthcoming from the public.
