I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of Jim Butts. Mr. Butts was a true gentlemen, he had been with our family accounting business over 30 years, 3 generations so to say of Accountants. I always looked forward to him visiting my office we had some great talks, and he shared great stories.

I am proud to say that Mr Butts has been a dear friend to all of ours at the Sandalwood Beach Resort. He always brought a smile to our faces and warmed our hearts with his gentle, caring manner. He always had a kind word to matter what was going on. I will always remember the glow of his pretty blue eyes. We will miss him and he will always hold a special spot in our hearts. From the Sandalwood Beach Board of Directors, Peggy Pohlman, Owners, and staff.

To all of Jim's family, we just want you to know we are deeply saddened and wish to offer you our sincere condolences. We met him through Tuffy and had many wonderful times just letting our dogs play together in the field on Golf Club Lane. Jim was always such a happy and loving man. He really enjoyed watching Tuffy let out the steam - he had almost as much fun as Tuffy did!
We miss him too.

Hi Neighbor! :-) Thanks for all the chats we had - the lunch we shared. You went too fast. But then again, that is what we old ones hope for - a quick end. And you did it. I will truly miss you.
