We'll Miss you Grandpa!

Here is Charles with Brooklyn during one of our visits to Cincinnati, he loved her SO much! Charlie's grandpa passed away this morning. We wanted to do a tribute to him today......
"My grandfather was a spiritual leader and quiet confidant. His health deteriorated 10 years ago after heart surgery but my grandfather never gave up! He always believed in his life long mission to take care of his family. My mom, grandma, Aunt Sue, and Uncle Mark will be hit deeply with his loss. He was what every man wishes he could be for his family; a silent leader. His life's work at Standard Publishing and Bridgetown Church of Christ is something to be admired, but it has always been his day to day devotion to his family that makes his memories remind of us Christ's love.
Grandpa, I have missed you for awhile now.......welcome home!"
Love,
Your name sake,
Charles Matthew Butler
