I’m so sorry for your loss. The Jenkins family has always been close to my heart. Even though I did not know Butch, I knew the the rest of the family, and through them felt like I knew him too. May God comfort you in your time of sorrow.

Dear Cindy, uncle Melvin, Aunt Mary and I are thinking of you. We were so happy to see Butch with Bobby at Park City a few weeks ago. Our prayers are with you. You have been a wonderful daughter and wife and mother for a Rusty. Please take good care. I’m not sure mother and dad will be able to attend on Wednesday but we will surely be with you in spirit.
Love, cousin Linda

Dear Cindy & Family:

Words can never adequately express the depth of sorrow for such a loss, for how can you quantify the significance of one, so precious a life? Butch was a truly kind and sweet man, a wonderful neighbor, and a courageous soul, who will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him. And although the sting of his absence grips your hearts, please remember, death is merely an illusion, for those we love live on in our hearts and their radiance shines down from the Heavens to remind us, they are now at peace and there are no endings, only new beginnings….there is no pain, no sadness…only love.

May you now find comfort in the love that binds us all together, in memories of happier times, and in the knowledge that others truly care.

Love & Sympathies,
Brenda, Stan & Norma
