Dear Cindy, Daughters, & Family Members,

We were sorry to learn about Butch's passing a week ago last Friday. It's always sad to lose a husband & beloved father & grandfather. I hadn't known that Butch was so ill for such an extended period; I don't have many connections w/ the West Sunbury community anymore. If I had known, please know that I would have sent you folks a "Thinking of You" card (or a series of cards!)

You all have our heartfelt sympathy. May God grant you His sweet peace~ at this most painful time of loss & in the days/weeks/months/years ahead.

Very sincerely yours,

-Harry & Carol Cunningham
