Elizabeth Rose (Butler)

Passed on: September 13th, 2018

Mom we held your hand through the good days and during your last journey in life when you were in pain and suffering. It was a small deed compared to you holding our hand and guiding us through our whole life. The feeling of love, warmth and the gentle squeeze of your hand is something we will cherish and treasure for the rest of our lives. It is with heart felt sadness and an uncanny sense of relief that we accept Gods will to take you with him today September 13, 2018 at Chancellor Park surrounded by our loving family. After an eleven year battle with Alzheimer’s we have lost the glue that has kept our extended families together.
