It has been 6 months since you have left us, and I sit here still crying missing you!!! I dont know if this will ever go away....I dont know how to console Mom and Dad or Gail... I know there pain must be emence..a son that they raised, and a husband that shared everyday together. We all miss you big Brother. Love You !
To the entire Connor family my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Just found out today about butchie, so sad, so many wonderful memories from St Rosalia to Magee.Always put a smile on my face.He will always have a special place in my heart. God Bless.
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.

Dear Connors family,
I have tried endlessly, but all I can remember is Butchie smiling. Always smiling. I remember him singing the Humpty Back Camel song at his parents anniversary, with the most beautiful of smiles. He is smiling on all of you now in Heaven and Our Fathers Grace. And he will be forever smiling at your kindnesses and love throughout his life. Family is everything. And he had the best.

How can I possibly find the words. Uncle Butch, you were a great man. I'll always remember the great times we had and that boisterous laugh that we all have grown to love.

I'll miss you.
