Not sure what to say?

To Jean's family--I just learned of her death in March and wish I had known sooner. Cuanto me pesa! I send you my deep sympathy and affection. What a remarkable woman she was and how very fortunate we were to know her. She and Cliff came often to our Quaker Meeting (Amawalk Monthly Meeting) and we loved them both. May good memories and pride in her great spirit be with you always. In Friendship, y con carino.

My family sends our sincere condolences for your loss. May happy memories of your loved one and the words of Isaiah 57:15 provide you with much comfort.

Our deepest condolences to Mrs. Butler's family. My husband and I had the honor and the pleasure of meeting her in 2000 at a university writers event. My husband enjoyed getting to know her when they sat together for one of the presentations. I was lucky to spend more time with her and very thankful for the advice she gave me about breaking into the soaps. Because of her book and her encouragement I was able to launch my writer career. I will be forever grateful to Jean Butler for her...

Mrs. Butler lived an extraordinary life. She and her husband overcame a sad and dreadful period in American history. What a successful career . And she had time to raise a family. I pray for Mrs. Butler ,her family and friends. Her story needs to be told in a documentary or play.

My deepest condolences on your loss. Mrs Butler was very kind and was of great assistance to me in my research for a book on Mickey Rooney. She was a brilliant and gracious person. I am in awe of her amazing life and career. My deepest sympathies on your loss.

I was sad to learn of Ms. Butler's passing. She was a guest of ours on two occasions at the Memphis Film Festival in 2002 and 2007. We celebrated her film career and found her to be a very interesting, accessible and friendly person. Her daughter Emily, who lives in my state of Arkansas, was also there on one occasion. Please express our condolence to her and the rest of Ms. Butler's family. We will post something about her on our festival website and Facebook page.
