    Uncle Jim and Family, I'm sorry Stacy and I were not able to attend Aunt Carolyn's funeral. I'm really sorry I didn't get a chance to see her again before the Lord called her home. She was always such a sweetheart and very loving. I'm sure she , mom, dad and our other loved ones who have gone to be with Jesus are having a wonderful reunion. We can only look forward to that day when we'll all be together again. God bless you all and may God grant you His peace that passes understanding. We love you, Dwight & Stacy Butler
