    To the Butts Family
    Please accept my deepest sympathy. I know at times like this it is hard to find the words to console the pain, so I encourage you to read Isiah 25:8 (or any Scripture). The promise stated there is very true because God cannot lie (Titus 1:2). Please give yourselves time and I hope this brings you comfort. Sincerely, James and Barbara Smith JR

    There are no words to express the sadness that I feel knowing that you are no longer with us… but, Thanking God that you will always be an angel to watch over us all. I will always miss your wonderful voice in song and praise.

    Da I miss you so much man. I never would have expected this especially at this time of the year. Your home going service was just like you would have wanted it, lots of singing and worshiping going on. You inspired a lot of people out here and for that I will forever be proud of you. Uncle David talked about your transition along with Aunt Marilyn talking about how you were about to tighten that guy up at work. You would have also been very proud of Pedee and the twins they represented you like always. This still seems so surreal. Well let me end this before I start crying again Love you much… The Man… Nikki really appreciates the love you have shown her over the years it meant a lot to her.
