I will miss (Butch) as she was known to her family and friends.

Butch and I had many phone conversations that sometimes last for over an hour. We would talk about our children and grandchildren and our health problems. And how fast life was passing us by.

I have many good memories of the family and friends softball games almost every Sunday behind Stebbins High School, were Butch would keep score and her husband Lloyd and her daughter Debbie would always play and run the bases bare footed.

I pray that God will help the family through the hard days that lay ahead with the loss of a mother so dear.

May God meet Butch at the gates to Heaven, and we all pray that we will too may make the trip there.

As written in my book "Dreams Outback"

Butch, the nickname our Dad gave her. She was the most sweetest kindest person that I’ve ever known. I never heard her utter a curse word or speak poorly of anyone. I was truly blessed to have had her as my sister for 61 years.
Please don’t feel sorrow for her because she is no longer suffering and she’s with the rest of our family that have already passed, but feel sympathy for all the ones she has left behind, her Son, Daughter, grandchildren, great grandchildren, friends and extended family. They are the ones that will be missing her the most.

To all my family,
Saying I’m sorry doesn’t make a part of life any better. One can only hope you won’t see a parent(s) or grandparent(s) suffer. I do know exactly what it does to one to lose parents and grandparents. It’s painful. It changes who are. But you also have good memories of those you’ve lost. Don’t let one day wipe away all those memories. Hang on to them all. Memories are precious gifts that no one can take from anyone.
I love you all!
