Dear Aunt Connie,
I am so heartbroken that this virus has kept us from all being together. I feel so powerless , to the way all of this has unfolded. My heart is with you . As well as Mike, Shell,Scott & the Grandkids too. As we journey through this,unable to be with you all , know that I am there in mind, heart, & prayer. One phrase that keeps coming to my mind over and over , & possibly one to share with the grandchildren, when it comes to the time, that Uncle Butch spent in the armed forces is this ," Heroes don't wear capes, they wear Dog tags. I. Feel like my hands are tied, of making sure Uncle Butch,receiving the Military Honor he deserves. But know in your heart I will forever hold a
...n eternal Salute for him. As he deserves this Honor and respect . For the reason, this is the only way I can Honor Uncle Butch, I would like to present this photo to you Aunt Connie . I so wish it could be the real thing, but as soon as we are able to all come together as a complete family, with a memorial And all the things he deserves. This is the best I can do. We love you and wish we could be at your side. Hopefully that time comes soon.Read more

Im so sorry for the family's loss. Losing my momma,my 38yr. old bro, and my 33yr.old bro all in 7 mo. I know all too well this brings a loss that cant be regained. It brings an emptiness that cant be filled and a hurt there is no medication for. Its a different hurt for each individual.For Connie will be the loss of a precious husband, others the loss of a precious brother, and on and on. But I have found that when I feel that indescribable hurt, i instantly think of a happy memory. Maybe a silly moment that brought a smile or a kind act that warmed someones heart. This will help you through your rough days. Ive found it to be true that on a day you miss him most walk outside and look around... cause somewhere close a cardinal will be found..
Love and many prayers to all the family💗

For Uncle Butch.
With the understanding that at this time of crisis , my heart hurts that your Military Honors won't be celebrated. With that in mind any time from this day forward when I hear a rifle shot , I will remember your sacrifice to your country. As well, any time I hear Taps played I will remember the Honor you deserve. With this in mind , I salute you " Uncle Butch" .I pray as well for Aunt Connie the Kids , the Grandkids, & the rest of this large family who is not able to come together in order to celebrate your life , & The memories you have left us all . I know when I say we love you and miss you and will continue miss and Honor you until we see you again on the streets of gol
