"Butch,
Where ever the world has taken you
There's always a place where your heart remains
Where you are loved and remembered and treasured...

I will always love you
I will always remember you
And I will always treasure you ~ Forever and ever."

"Butch,
Missing you today and everyday of my life.

Never Forgotten...
You'll never be forgotten, that simply cannot be.
As long as I am living I'll carry you with me.
Safely tucked within my heart, your light will always shine.
A glowing ember never stilled throughout the end of time.
No matter what the future brings or what may lie ahead,
I know that you will walk with me along the path I tread.
So rest my angel, be at peace and let your soul fly free.
One day I'll join your glorious flight for all eternity.

I love you and today I am remembering all the wonderful Thanksgivings we have shared. You are forever in my heart."

"I would like to write a song, a sweet and simple song
And if I do it right, it's the only one I'd sing
Because it would bring me everything I need
A song that I could sing you back to me
A miracle of page and pen
You would hear it and be here again
And always and forever there would be
A song that I could sing you back to me...

Sherry loves Butch ~ Forever and ever"

This tribute was added by Sharon Serrano on 5th September 2016

"I didn't know that day would be our last
Or I would have to say goodbye so fast
I'm so numb, I can't feel anymore
Praying you will just walk through that door
And tell me I was only dreaming, and that your not really gone
In a world where heroes come and go
God just took the only one I know
So I'll hold you as close as I can
Longing for the day, when I see your face again
But until then...
God must have needed another angel around the throne tonight
Your love lives on inside of me and I will hold on tight
It's not my place to question, only God knows why
I'm just jealous of the angles around the throne tonight.

I love you ~ forever and ever."

"Butch,
I miss you so much. When someone asks me how long it has been since I lost you, I tell them it feels like yesterday even though it been so much longer, the pain is still the same. Amanda and I went to a funeral last week for a twentynine year old boy, he had been in and out of the hospital for the past two years, and every time Amanda walked into his room his mothers would say " look it's your favorite " so his loss was really hard for her because she got very close to him and his mother. At the funeral the priest was talking about how hard it was going to be for his parents and then he said, you know it is going to get worst before it gets better and the first thing that went through my mind was, when is it going to get better. I don't feel it getting any better, I feel your loss every single day and wish you were here where you belong. I love you with all my heart... and will forever and ever."

"Butch,
I will never forget the moment I realized I loved you.
How could I ever forget...
When you have given me so many beautiful memories.
Remembering you is such an important part of my life now because...
True love stories never have endings..."

"Eternity
is where true love exists...

You are my eternity,
When we first started dating we always told each other
love you forever and ever, we wrote it on every card and love note.
I now know we will love each other forever and ever through eternity.

Butch and Sherry ~ Forever and ever and all through eternity."

"Another 4th of July without you...I miss you so much everyday, but the holidays are the hardest. We always had our traditions and that's what made every holiday so special. I had to take the corvette out of the garage because the fireworks are getting so crazy, and they were being shot over the garage roof. I love to drive that car, not just because it is such a kick to drive, but because it is and always will be a tribute to my Butch. Everyone can look at that car and see it is Butch's 63, I just wish you were still here to drive it. Amanda found a Wanders jacket and because that was one of you favorite movies she is going to have "Butch" put on the front. It seems everyday we find some way to honor your memory and that will never change. I love you and miss you with all my heart ~ stay close and keep guiding us in everything we do. Forever and ever yours."

"Life goes on yes, I go on...
But the I that goes on is not the same and never will be
Because you are not here with me.
I have to accepted that my life will forever be incomplete without you.
Every moment of my life has a missing part,
Missing who I was when we were together...
Missing what was and what will never be because we are apart.
Missing you is a part of my life now and I know that will never change.
Love you, forever and ever"

"Butch,
Though your smile I can no longer see and your hand I can no longer hold, I still have all the beautiful memories of the one I love so much. Your memory is my keepsake and with that I will never part. God has you in his keeping but I still have you in my heart. It's sad to walk this road alone, instead of side by side. You gave me so many years of happiness, then came the heartbreak and tears. But you left me with so many beautiful memories that I will treasure forever and ever...

People always talk about closure, but closure is not about ending my love for you, that will never happen. Closure is about opening yourself up to a deeper love, a love that you can no longer see or touch, a love that is not bound by beginnings and endings. Closure is the end of physical love and the start of a spiritual love that can never die...

If I had one wish it would be to once again see your face, hear your voice, hold your hand, hold you close, hug you tightly and kiss you softly. I want to hear your heart beating just for me as mine beats just for you. I love you and miss you so much...Butch and Sherry ~ Always and Forever..."

"When I lost you the dream was lost
I was left with love, without a dream
In loss I found my deepest love had no place to go,

never enough time...

Love you forever and ever..."
