Our hearts are sad just knowing that Butch is no longer with his beloved family. Having grown up as an only child, I think, God in His goodness, blessed Butch in a special way by giving him Lilli and her beautiful family. He was so very happy to share his life with you all. Lilli, you and your children & grandchildren surrounded Butch with so much love. All the love he could ever hope for. May the God of all comfort, give comfort to you.

Larkin & Nettie Gregoire

Lillie, Greg, and Family, We offer our deepest condolences during this very difficult time. We are very sadden to hear of the passing of our dear cousin Butch. Our only consultation of his passing is that he had faith in Jesus Christ and therefore he is saved and will be granted eternal life in our Lord’s kingdom. The Bible says “Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved, and your household” Acts 16:31 You all will be in our daily prayers as we all grieve the great loss our Butch. Our faith in God’s Son, Jesus Christ is our only consultation that we will be reunited with Butch and the others that we love and grieve for. Your Brother & Sister in Christ, Larkin and Nettie Gregoire
