Welcome to My Personal Page

Hi! We are the grandchildren of Butch Youmans. Many of you knew our Granddaddy Butch. After suffering from the horrible disease of pancreatic cancer, he went to live in Heaven nearly 6 years ago. Sadly, we never got to meet him. Everyone tells us that he would have LOVED us more than life itself and would have been our biggest fan and supporter. Some people say we look like him, and Nonna tells us that he would have loved telling us stories about our parents, Spencer and Savannah growing up, buying us candy, teaching us about baseball, and playing catch!! It makes us sad that we will miss growing up without him here, but we will always have a special guardian angel watching over us from Heaven. So... to honor our Granddaddy, we three cousins are going to show up to Purple Stride 2019 and toddle around the course to pay tribute to his memory!  It will be lots of fun, but it's serious business too! You see, it raises money to advance research, support patients, and create hope for people fighting pancreatic cancer. Nonna says, with everyone's help, hopefully by the time we're a little older, this cancer will have a cure and other kiddos won't have to grow up without their granddaddy like we did. Wouldn't that be great?!  So, if you can and would like to help, please go to www.purplestride.org/birmingham then click on Donate, and our team is Butch's Braves, or contact our Nonna(she's our secretary), Donna Youmans @(334)-504-4717.  A great big THANK YOU for your support!!  Love, Granger & Shepherd Youmans, and Brooklyn Jones (and my Nonna too!)
