Condolences

Philip And Casey we are sorry for your loss. Our prayers are with you.

Kids - Phil, Bryan, Jennifer & Luticia - Grandchildren, Sisters, Cousins, all friends & family, I'm sorry for your loss. I'm so heartbroken. Can't believe Butch [Luther] is gone. Been going to call him for awhile now, deeply regret not having done so. Hadn't talked to him since after the virus struck. Was to help him with his solar panels. Had no idea we'd never talk again. He was a good man.

I especially hurt for you kids. Love you all. Hang in there. Try always to remember the good times, funny times, happy times pertaining to your daddy. It helps. It did for my sister, brothers & me when we lost our parents.

Butch was kind to me. Appreciated him fixing an electricity problem I had last year. He refused my money. He was so knowledgeable, not only in electricity, but in all practical things around the house & gave me helpful tips.

How I loved our conversations. His love & knowledge of honey bees was so impressive & uplifting. I'd always thought about having a bee hive like our grandma did many years ago, yet it was Butch who actually did it. Was so exited... he was going to bring a bee catcher down to my house. Now in Heaven, he doesn't need to catch any more bees. I can imagine him enjoying MANY BEES fluttering all about him and he doesn't even need his bee suit now. I trust Butch's family, who went before him, was right there welcoming him with great rejoicing, hugging & loving on him... now together forever more in perfect Love, Peace, & Joy. - Thank you Jesus for this hope & reassurance. Amen

So sorry and shocked to hear of Luther's passing. We had many wonderful conversations on facebook. We used to be neighbors when we were little. He talked of his family often and loved you all so much. Loved being a grandpa. Remember all the happy times!
