Sharon, family and friends,
I am sorry to hear of Butch's passing. Even though we are getting close to the crossing of worlds ourselves, it is always a bit of a shock when we learn that a friend from our younger days has gone Home.
May the Lord be very close to you in these coming days. Cling to Jesus. His Holy Spirit is the only True Comforter. God bless you very much.
