Dear Sandy and Carole,
I am so very sorry to hear of Uncle Meade's passing. He was such a special uncle to me, and I have many fond memories of our family get-togethers growing up. I loved how interested he was in our lives, always asking his "20 questions". It was amazing and inspiring how much he could accomplish in a single day! He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
Nancy, David, Jack and Grace Butler
