God saw you getting tired and the cure was not to be;

So He wrapped you in His loving arms and whispered, “Come with Me.” 

You suffered much in silence, your spirit did not bend;

You faced your pain with courage until the very end.

You tried so hard to stay with us, your fight was all in vain;

God took you in His loving arms and saved you from all pain.

He operated a pizza restaurant.It was a pleasure to have met him and his wife. My wife Diane who also knew Mr. Mrs. Butler passed away September 25, 2020 to cancer. It is extremely hard to lose someone you love so dearly. Know that I will keep you in my prayers, take care
