It's hard to fathom that you have been gone 9 years now Dad Butler! These words a friend of ours shared with us following your loss blessed our hearts following your passing as we keep your memory close.......  "The intestinal fortitude displayed by your Father's generation has yet to be matched by another. I assume greatly in part to the great feats they accomplished for our nation. We all mourn with you and your family, not only because you are our friend, but also because we lost another Great American."
We love you Dad! Always & Forever in our hearts.....
