Thinking about you a lot dad miss the hell out of you! Sometimes days just suck! Wish so much that you were here, I know you are in your own little way! Love you
Happy Fourth of July dad! Not the same without you.
Hi. We went to the beach. It was so unnatural being there without you. I told them that you were more at peace standing on the wall fishing or just leaning on the rail looking out at the ocean than you are at any other time. It was more than I could bear because I missed you too much. I am trying so hard to be strong. Our hearts were just too filled with memories that hurt too much right now. Together forever...
Happy Father's Day dad! It's not the same without you ! You know you're in my heart and I know you are watching over us like you always do. I love you dad. Not a day goes by I don't think of you. We miss you!
Love Crystal, Joe and Snickerdoodle.
It won't be the same having our cookout without dad. But you know you're in all of our hearts. Love you dad
Just thinking about you dad! I think about you everyday. I hope you know how much I love you and how much Lilly crystal and I cherished all the times we got to spend together.
I love you dad!
Just got back from taking Lilly fishing. When shed reel in the line she'd say " this is how poppy taught me to do it" we love you dad.
Happy Easter Butch. Your whole family missed you today. It seems so strange without you. You were our rock. David saw deer walking toward your spot at the cemetery this evening and even though when he told me it gave us tears we knew the deer would please you.
Happy Easter dad! I wish so much that you would be sitting at the head of the table today. In our hearts you know you will be. I miss you so much. I love you dad. Happy Easter.
If we could bring you back again for one more hour or day, we'd express all our unspoken love, we'd have countless things to say.
If we could bring you back again, we'd say we treasured you, and that your presence in our lives meant more than we ever knew.
If we could bring you back again to tell you what we should, you would know how much we miss you now and if we could we would.
Happy Easter, I Love You
Your Niece, Deb
I love you dad. Lilly tells us some of the funny things you used to say to her. She wants to to put the dollar coins and halfs in plastic cause she said she never wants to lose them.
Just thinking of you dad! I miss being able to call you and talk. I love you dad. I know you are still watching out for us like you always have. Love joe
I miss you. Your picture makes me think you are smiling at us!
Aunt Betty Jo, David, Joey and Family;
Thinking of all you. My prayers and thoughts are with you and Uncle Butch. Not a day goes by that I don't think about all of you. I know Uncle Butch is in Heaven smiling down on all of us. WE LOVE YOU.
Loving You All Always
Your Niece & Cousin Deb
To the family, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Love you dad! Wish you were here!
Just been thinking about you dad! I miss you so much. There's not a day goes by that I won't think about you.
I love you dad!
BJ and family. Our prayers are with you at this sad time. We can not imagine life without Butch. Please know he will be missed. We pray you will find peace.
Dearest BJ & Family,
I cannot begin to express the sadness that I am still feeling today. Never again will i hear "See ya Sweetie" after a fun-filled evening with friends. Those memories will last forever. From the first time that Dan & I met you and Butch, our friendship blossomed. I love you both so much. I cannot express to you, David & Joey for the outpouring of love at Butch's service. The act of including us in the most private time of your lives will not be forgotten. It meant so very much to both, Dan & I, when David and Joey asked us to have a private moment with Butch. Dan has lost his very best friend in the world. Our many evenings together at one of the clubs, our vacation to Ocean City with your family, and the numerous fishing trips are forever in our hearts. Please know that any of you, including Tina & Crystal, may call upon us for anything at all. We consider you our family as well. Thank you again for your continued friendship and Butch will always know how very much Dan loved him.
Tina Noll & Dan Burns
My dearest BJ, I am so very sorry to hear about your beloved Butch. The two of you were such a wonderful couple together and had always so much love between you. He will be missed by so many people. My heart and my prayers are with you and all of your family.
Strength be with you and your family Joe
My Dearest BJ
Our heart bleeds for you, keep all the wonderful memories locked inside your heart and you may have some comfort to get through this , he was taken way to soon. Love You
Our Heartfelt sympathy....
Randy and Chris Fogle
We are so sorry for your loss. May the light guide you though!
My Dearest Rudolph FAMILY. Absence only makes the heart grow fonder. There will be a void in that chamber of the heart that will never be filled again. Stay strong as a family unit and remember to tell your loved ones everyday that you Love them while they still hear you! The shock is wearing off and we are left with the emptiness but fill the emptiness with Love and you'll conquer the storm. Love You All
Just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. I always admired the way I could tell and feel how much in love you were/are with Butch whenever I was around the two of you. Will always remember all the fun cookouts and parties and him working with my dad. You have a lifetime of beautiful memories to cherish and hold on to and they will embrace you as you continue your journey through the rest of your life without your best friend. Sending Love and Hugs to you, David, Joey and their families. Love you all !
We are so sorry to hear the passing of a great man and friend. He has touched so many lives and we have only the fondest memories of him. God bless all of you during these tough times.
Kyle and Beth
Life is a journey with one end and Butch's ended much too soon. He will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him. The memories of him will keep his spirit alive in your heart until you meet again. I love you BJ!
Dear Bj, we were so sorry to hear about Butch. Our hearts are filled with sadness. With our love always.
Words cannot express how sorry I am to hear of your loss. I remember seeing you driving around all the time in your work truck and how we'd always chit chat, you always had a smile on your face and will be missed by many. Betty Jo and family your in my prayers and thoughts. Love ya'll lots xoxoxo
I am so sorry for your loss. No words can be said to bring you peace but hope you may find comfort in knowing you have the support and prayers of those that knew him and now have the privilege of knowing you.
Dad I just want to let you know that I've been thinking about you. It just hurts that I can't pick up the phone and talk about treasure hunting or Morgan silver dollars. Lilly broke down last night cause she misses you so badly. Going home and walking in the house to hear you say "hiii snicker doodle" but she is ok dad, I don't want you to worry dad, she's a tough as you and we'll all get thru this. I love you dad. Talk to you later
My heart is so full of sadness for you and your family. I am keeping you and your family in my prayers.
With many comforting hugs,
My sympathies go out to the family. Dave often presented a tough persona on the outside but was a kind good hearted person inside. I once asked him to teach me how to run the paving machine and he grumbled as usual. A couple of weeks later we went out to pave, I climbed on the back of the machine and he said "what are you doing"? He handled me a shovel and gave me the hardest job on the crew. He said I had to learn everything. I shoveled all day; I know Sam Carter and Dave got a kick out of that. Dave taught me a lot. Thanks Dave!
BJ my heart was broken for you and your family when I heard the news. Please know that you are loved and we are here for you any moment night or day. Love and Light my friend!
BJ, Words can never express how sorry I am for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
BJ, I am so sorry for your loss. Butch was a great man and a good friend. I will truly miss talking with him. I hope you know that if there is anything you need, I am only a few doors away. God Bless and stay strong!
Were so sad that you left us so soon. I'll remember you for your blue jeans and your pennie loafers. But mostly for the man that you were. I'll remember the good times we had during the labor day parties you had years ago. They were some of my best memories in life. We will miss you so much. Betty Joe, David & Joey, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
I'm so sorry to hear about your husband, BJ. I know there are no words to help but just know that we are thinking about you and sending up prayers for strength during this hard,hard time. Wish we could be there for you but you are in our thoughts. Love you, Jackie (in GA)
Betty Jo, David and Joey, so sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed being around Butch because he always made me laugh! He was a great guy. I missed seeing him downtown when he retired, he would always blow the horn when he drove by! Even though I didn't see him much he will be missed! Love you guys, Angie
My Dear BJ,
Although no words can really help to ease your loss and pain, please know that I am holding you close and you're in my heart and prayers.
BJ and family, you have our sympathy. Butch was a great neighbor for many years. After he retired, I missed seeing him on my mail route during the day. Always left him laughing or with a smile on my face. Always. He was a great person. BJ, I'm around the corning for you! Take care all of you and cherished those memories.
Janie,Victor and Angela
Disbelief and shocked to see this morning's paper and recognize the familiar face of "Butch". Sending my love and prayers to BJ and family. Sorry for the loss of such a beautiful soul.
So sorry for your loss BJ,Tina and family.Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this very difficult time! Deb and Vince Pressel
It is hard for me to express the thoughts that I feel today, but I will try. David, Joe and I and my sons families have lost part of our heart. We lost Butch very suddenly. The fates can be cruel. There is an emptiness and sadness that is beyond belief.
A lot of times cards say "May you take comfort in knowing that your friends are thinking of you." Believe me that is not an empty phrase. I have felt such an outpouring of love from our friends and family and I take comfort in knowing we are loved and Butch was loved as well. I know he could be tough sometimes.........but someone said to me yesterday -- we could all see through that toughness to the heart of gold inside.
I love you all so very much and I thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
B J Rudolph
Our deepest sympathies go out to you,BJ and your family on the passing of Butch. It sure was a shock when I read it in the paper as I didn't know he was sick. Please feel free to call on me anytime at all if you need me, I will be here for you. Love you girl and God Bless.
Betty Jo, David and JoeI have walked in your shoes and shed the tears you are shedding now. I lost my husband over 10 years ago to a drowning, and It is not an easy thing , to get up each day ,knowing our loved one is not going to be with us. My heart goes out to all of you. I wished I had met Butch, especially after reading all the comments your friends have left. Good memories are everlasting. God bless you and give you the peace you will need.
I am still in disbelief. I love Butch as my own father. He welcomed me into his family as his own. I can't put into words the love and admiration I have for him. I am proud to have his last name. He will remain in my heart forever. My heart breaks for my family. I love you all.
BJ. We are so sorry to hear about Butch. Sending love and prayers your way.
Mike and Sundra Shaffer
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Wow BJ I am so sorry to hear about Butch. We are thinking and Praying for you.We will miss seeing you. Don't be a stranger. This has to be so hard for you right now we are here for you if you need any thing. Love Ya
I am still in disbelief. I loved Butch like my own father. He welcomed me into his family as his own. There aren't enough words to express my love, admiration and gratitude. He will be in my heart forever.
Dad I don't even know where to start! It breaks my heart that I'll never see you look at me and say " boy what did I just tell you" when I messed up. Or I'll never get to hear you whistle when it was time for me and David to come home to eat. You were tough as nails on the outside but so gentle on the inside. There was never a time we didn't know you loved us. You were always more concerned about making other people comfortable then your yourself. I remember one time after you and I got into a disagreement you told me "Joey I don't want you going thru what I went thru in life" and you made sure I did. I've always told people that now that I'm grown up, you and mom are my best friends. I think it says a lot. For parents who went without so that their kids didn't have to. It breaks Lilly's heart that you're gone and she said to us "poppy always took me fishing" I'm so glad her and crystal went to the beach last year because that will always be with them. I love you dad more then you'll ever know. Some day we'll all be together again. Love you dad!
Dave my heart goes out to you and your family we grew up in fireside and your dad always had kind words and would always as hi whenever out and about stay strong my friend and remember the good times prayers to you and your family!
