Are there any words that can comfort the hearts of grieving parents? I Think Not
Is there anything that can stop the tears from flowing because we miss You? I Think Not
As your parents we were supposed to go first. Instead YOU are
the one who is gone from us far too soon.
In recent years we talked by the hour about anything & everything you wanted to talk about. You loved it when Dad joined in.
We read Scriptures together. You especially liked Psalms, Proverbs & Philippians. We prayed together. Sometimes it was you & I . Oftentimes it was you, Dad & I.
In days to come we'll dwell on the good times & the many special times we've shared.
Your race is won! We are left to carry on without you.
We have always loved You!
We will always miss You!
Love Always,
Mom & Dad

Brian, Brian…Brian,
From the times I used to come over to your house in 1978 to play tennis with you, in hopes of getting to see your sister, to the time we went to Rinehimer’s Body Shop to pick up your ’68 GTO after the accident and we got hot rodding around and you wrecked it again. To Christmas, 2018, when you spent the holiday at our house and even since then with our heart-to-hearts on the phone. My respect, admiration and affection for you will last forever. As a student, businessman and father, I have always held you in high regard. You have always set the bar high by your excellence.
As one of only two people who can truly say this “My Brother”, I have, do and will always love, honor and miss you. And I vow to always take care of Mom and Dad, to the best of my ability, for as long as they live.
Peace Bro

Dear Family,

We deeply appreciate all the kind words and expressions of love written here. My heart aches for my Mom & Dad especially. It was just Brian & I, and now he’s gone much too soon. Yet, he’s free in ways he never could have been on this earth.

If you could hear me now Brian, I would tell you how incredibly much I miss you already... how much Harold & the kids miss you too. We’re remembering the great times we had together... like when you rode on Dumbo @ Disney to make them happy, all the go kart races, the dirt bike rides up north, the beach trips, and our last Christmas together when we took pictures together on Hawk’s Nest Mountain.

Just knowing we’ll never see you again in this lifetime cuts deep. I’m thankful we’ll be together again in eternity, but its painful to think about how many new things you had yet to experience in this next chapter of your life.
It was a sad flight down, but we got to see and hug your body one last time, we spent time in your favorite scenic spot, released balloons in your honor, and cried together. I played the old Eagles songs we both loved on my way to the beach to reflect, and at the end of the day God painted the sky with the most amazing display of color over the waters, as if to say he’s got you and it will be okay.

Brian, thank you for loving us, for being my little brother and such an encouragement in recent years on my nursing school journey. I will miss you at my graduation next month, and we’ll miss you for Christmas in New York with a new baby niece and nephew to meet, but after experiencing the joys of Heaven I’m sure you’d never want to leave. So, we’ll all celebrate your life at Christmastime and try to hold back the flood of tears because you’re truly in a better place... a place where only our Savior could love you more than we do! ❤️

With all our hearts,
Sheri & Harold Butler & family
