    So sorry to hear of Butch’s passing. We have so many good memories of our visits to Stewartsville and time at family reunions. Butch was a blessing to my sister Theresa and will always hold a special place in our hearts. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family; May God be your strength during this sad time.
    With deepest sympathy and our love,
