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,
Traci

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,
I was so sorry to hear about Butch he will be missed for a long time to come.
There was no better friend then him if Butch ever talked to you, you felt like he had been your friend forever,he was always the same had a great outlook on life and he loved to work and loved sports and his Family.
My prayers are with you.
Mac
