"Today is Wednesday, January 1, 2014, the first day of a new year.  Another year we celebrated without you.  All your nieces and nephew are growing older with children of their own.  They hear us talking about you, how funny you were and how much we all miss you and love you.  John and Delbert send me messages through FB (Facebook) occasionally.  It looks like John's designs will be taking off, you'd be so proud of him."

"There are times like today, when I wish you were here.  If it were possible for me to ask, and you could do, I would pray that you would be the guardian-angel that your grandbabies need.  Not just for today, but for the rest of their lives."

"Thursday, August 8th, your little sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Chase.  She was born the day after Hubert's birthday.  I know that you would be proud of Dorian and Tichallah for still being together after all these years and raising their daughters.  I'm so glad that you had a chance to meet and know T.C., and I know you gave your approval.  Missing you ~ Love mama"

"Today, you would have been celebrating your 46th birthday.  Today, everyone would have been calling you, wishing you many more birthdays.  Instead, I'm leaving you this message on your memorial site to say we think of you everyday, we say out-loud, or in small whispers and prayers that we will always remember you and love you.  "Happy Birthday" son...love, mama!"

"I give you this one thought to keep - I am with you still - I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awake in the morning's hush I am the swift, uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.  I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone - I am with you still"

"Your daughter, nieces and nephew have grown up without you, and have children of their own.  Your oldest sister is a grandmother, your youngest sister is married with children. I have retired. Today I choose to celebrate your life, not just remember your passing.  I will say a silent prayer at your gravesite ~  Eternal rest grant him oh Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him."

"Denise and I just got back from Ypsilanti to visit with John and Mary.  He told me about his dream of you and the conversation he had.  Your spirit is still very strong around those of us who love you.  We looked at all his drawings, and talked about his business, then we talked about you and all the things you and John use to get into."

"Mikie came by this evening and we had a long talk.  We talked about how things have changed in the city, how some young people have gone hog-wild and pig-crazy, and have lost all respect for themselves and everyone else.  Then the talk turned to you; and how very much we miss you, love you, and wondered how things would be if you were here.  I didn't realize how much Mikie idolized you."

"Today is Sunday, Father's Day, and you are missed.  Your daughter is fixing a wonderful dinner for your grandchildren's father and I know you would have been there to celebrate with them.  I look at John, Delbert,  Mikie with their children and would have loved to seen all of you growing old together, still talking smack, LOL.  Happy Father's Day son!"

"Tonight I went to see your son escort his date to the Senior Prom.  It was twenty years ago that you watched your little sister and her date (now your brother-in-law) go to their prom.  I remember how proud you were of her, and I know you would have been just as proud to watch your own son this evening.  Toya is a wonderful big sister to Little Ollie.  Watch over them Butch!"

"Remembering you today Butch, May 15, 2012, it would have been your 45th birthday.  Not a day has gone by, since you left us, that I haven't thought about you ~ sometimes with tears, but more often remembering your smile, your sense of humor, your laugh and how very much I still love you and my heart aches.

Until we meet again, Love mama!"

"Resurrection Sunday ~ Well Butch, the family was here to celebrate Easter, and as always we started reminiscing about you.  Mikie, Nikki and Monica told stories about you.  We watched the children playing and knew that you would have teased, played and loved each and everyone of your great-nieces and great-nephews, as well as your own grandchildren. I know you were watching and laughing."

This tribute was added by Donna Johnson-Thomas on 6th March 2012

"Yesterday is in the past, tomorrow is in the future and is not promised, that's why we only have today (the present), which is a gift from God.  When I would ask Butch, his answer was always, "I will tomorrow mother."  His tomorrow never came, don't let it be too late for you.

This is my request to you, don't wait until tomorrow."
