Not sure what to say?

I was blessed with the gift of knowing you in this lifetime. Every room in my home has beautiful work that your gifted hands either fixed or created. The world will miss your many talents and your wonderful presence. What a blessing it was to have known you!

To the Butler family, Robert, Gilbert, Bobbie and Kim,
Let me say that I am sorry for your loss. When I think about Al, here are the words that come to my mind... Bob, builder, boating, bowling, beard, and boys. And here are the reasons why... Bob - Al had a fun relationship with his Dad. Builder - Al built houses, cabinets and transformed horse trailers into something more than a horse trailer. Boating - Al was one heck of a water skier. Bowling - Al was also one heck of a bowler. ...

Sorry we never got to say our goodbyes,or have another talk on life in general.We will remember,and think of you often.Thanks for all your help,pull up a chair on the porch,we'll have a drink and watch the sunset.Rest in peace...

Al, words cannot express how much we will miss you. We cannot imagine a world without Al Butler-- you were such a great, loyal friend.
We're sorry we are unable to speak just one more time-- if only to hear you say "Later!", so we'll say it instead for you: Later, our good friend, "Later!".

I will miss you Albert Butler! You were a good friend and I am grateful to have had our paths cross here in the physical world. May your spiritual journey be one of peace, great bowling and hot slot machines. Good bye my friend.

Thank you Al for fine memories and friendship. You left way too soon dear friend. It has been a joy and privilege to know you and your two sons. I know somewhere in heaven you are bowling a 300, and winning all the card games.

Al, we've had many laughs, cries, discussions and most of all friendship. I always been one to turn to you in times of need. I will truly feel your loss. Behave yourself and come back to us if you can.

Al, you will forever be in my heart and mind. May you find peace in heaven. We will miss you very much and your memories will be with me always.
