I was so sorry to hear about Butch,I wish I could have been there for you and your family but I was out of town,just got back in town sat and Julian told me, Glenda I'am so so sorry
I know how much you and Butch loved each other,There are no two people in this world could hold a candle to the love you and Butch shared with each other. I know your heart is breaking,and I know it will be a long up hill climb for you,but remember someday when you have joined him at God throne, it's then you will understand why he had to leave this earth God doesn't have any secrets;
It's just all planned from our birth.
I want you to know we are here for you. maybe later we can go out to dinner,or if you just want to talk call me any time day or night.
Love Patty and Family

To his wife and family,
He left the world knowing he was loved.
Nothing in life could be a more precious gift, he will always be in our hearts, he always stood for what was right and good.
And for this we shall forever cherish his memory.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Harold “Butch” Milton Arrington, I love you!
It has taken me a few days to gather my thoughts and write the memories I have of my Uncle Butch. I still cannot believe he is gone. He was such a wonderful man. He touched the lives of many people in his community, and others he did not know. Uncle Butch was an angel on earth. Many people have already acknowledged that Butch was a hard working man, neat, and well groomed; how much he loved his family and his grandsons. Every time I came to visit my uncle, he always greeted me with a big warm smile. There was always a sparkle in his eyes. And oh, how he liked to tease. I loved the way he talked in that “southern” slang. He always made me feel special and loved. I remember every time I came down to see my family, there would be Uncle Butch out washing and waxing his truck. I remember the first time I saw him starch and press his jeans to get that perfect crease. Amazing, I didn’t know that people did such a thing. I know what it’s like to lose a grandmother, a grandfather, a mother, a brother, and an uncle. The pain cuts deep into the heart. There is a void that feels like it will never be filled. The tears are many, but there is laughter too. The memories we hold dear and cherish. Yet, I do not know what it is like to lose a husband; your life-long love; your best friend. I cannot begin to imagine what life would be like without him. Aunt Glenda, I wish I could take away your pain. My heart aches when I see you cry - knowing how your heart must be broken. It is quiet now that he is gone. I am in a state of disbelief. There is a place in my heart, where my uncle will remain. I will always cherish the memories that I have of him. My heart goes out to my family, Aunt Glenda, Tonia, Dalton, and Will. I pray that God will give you comfort and peace. Know that your husband, daddy, and paw-paw, is in heaven waiting for us all.
With all my love,
January 22, 2010
Glenda, Gail and Families,
Butch and I go back a long way, but he has finished the journey first. I am so sorry I was unable to be with you during this time, but my heart and prayers are with you. No words could console for each of you loved Butch in a different way and now part of you is different. We shared childhood, teenage years and at times of crises in adult life each sought out the other to console a true friend. That physical presence ALL will miss. He left each person he touched with a memory of love, true concern and compassion he always extended and will never be forgotten. You are in my prayers.

To Butch's Family,

My prayers are with you.

To The Arrington Family,
Mr. Butch was a great man. He always had a smile on his face everytime i can remember seeing him. i know your hearts are hurting and your eyes are crying tears, but always cherish the momories that he gave to each and everyone of you. He wouldn't want to know you are having heartache nor tears of sadness. He would want you to celebrate all the good times and memories and would want to know those tears are of happiness in celebrating his life with us here on earth. It may not be tomorrow or even years from now but just know and believe in yourself that you will see him again, for he is watching down on you from the Heavens above, and you will see him again in the next life to come! May God be with you all and your families in this time of sorrow.

I didn't see Butch much in the last few years but I did see him at walmart some months ago and he did tell me he had cancer but he just didn't look sick.
Thats a testament to what he was like, he was tough as nails. I'm sure he will be sorely missed. He was a good man. A lot of character.
January 17, 2010
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

The world has truely lost a great man. It was truely a blessing to have known Butch. A man of compasion in the highest form. He never left a doubt of how much he thought of you, telling you that he loved you face to face with a big hug to follow. He was kind to the unfortunate also giving people a break that otherwise wouldn't get a chance. A man who had a love for family that was seen by all. There's no way words could describe how much Butch touched my life, and how he inspired me to try and be a better man just as I was coming into manhood. May God take him into his kingdom with open arms. I have no doubt that a heart so pure and kind is at home with our Father right now. Love you Butch, 525 to 515 over n out!

Butch was the most kind, positive, caring and compassionate man that I ever knew. I only had the pleasure of knowing him for 3 short years but he made a huge impression upon me. Butch was a true man and an amazing human being! He will be missed! My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. May God walk with you and hold your hand during this difficult time in your life.

Glenda & Family:

I am sorry to hear about Butch. I have been out of touch with all of our old friends for the last several years, and didn't know that Butch was battling cancer. Know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. There is nothing I can say or do to ease your pain.....just cherish the precious memories that you have of your life together. Butch was a good man and I know he loved you and his family dearly.

May God hold you and your family close as you face the days ahead.

Love to you and your family,
