My deepest sympathy goes out to the entire Butterworth family. In the few precious years I knew Mr. Butterworth, I quickly learned what an amazing and inspirational person he was. He taught me a lifetime worth of lessons about living each day to the fullest and accepting and embracing life as it comes. As the saying goes, there are some people who come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts and we are never ever the same. It is apparent that he was that person for all those he encountered.

He is the father-in-law I could have only dreamed of and the type of Grandfather you wish for, for your child. You will be sorely missed, but have left an abundance of memories I will always treasure and numerous life lessons we will pass on to George III.

We will always love you,

Kelli and Baby George Butterworth

Dear Nadine and Family,
It is to my misfortune that I didn't get the opportunity to know George personally. I wish my family had more time with him. I have heard so many wonderful stories about him through his family and my daughter, Kelli. His legacy lives on in the hearts of Nadine, Denise, Warren, Lori, and Raymond. It is so evident through them the values and lifes lessons he taught so well. I have delighted in the many stories that his family has shared with us. Extending deep and heartfelt sympathy to you and all your family. He will live on in the hearts of everyone who loved him. May it be a source of inner stregth to know that their's a loving God watching over you and that, throughout this time of need, he'll stay close by your side. May God's presence ease your sorrow. May the memories of the fun you shared bring you gentle comfort. In our hearts we feel your loss.
