It seems like an eternity since you left us, Uncle Brooks. I have had plenty of time to sort through my feelings and still come up missing you terribly. You were a great role model and I do wish that all the traits that made you so special will live on in me. You could make me laugh until it hurt. I loved spending my summers in Jackson. It is a fond memory that I cherish.

God bless you, Uncle Brooks. You had more of an impact on my life than you will ever know. I do love you.

Brooks and my mother, Maurine McLemore Butler, were cousins. They were born in Medina, TN. I came to know Chancellor McLemore after I became a lawyer in 1967 in Jackson. He was so intelligent and judgelike and I always wanted to be able to have that type of presence. He was an inspiratio to me as a young lawyer and was always available to give advice. He did so much for the legal profession, especially when he and Judge Paul
R.Summers worked to get the judges retirement plan approved by the legislature. We all benefit from that now. I am also glad to learn of his military service. I have a large portrait of Chancellor McLemore hanging in my main courtroom in Jackson to remind me of his stature and ideals. When I remodeled the courtroom about 3 years ago, and had a grand opening, many came, and my special guest was Chancellor McLemore. He also came to my swearing in in 2003 and of the hundreds of people there, he was the only one recognized by name by the speaker. He has meant a lot to me over the years and I am saddened by his passing. My sympathies to "Nootie" and the family in their loss.

James F. Butler
Chancellor, Tennessee, 26th Judicial District
