Lindley Butler was a gentle giant who treasured his family and friends. He had
 an unselfish devotion to the world around him as he participated in all of God's marvelous creations. 
Lindley was my friend and although, through my moving away and then, like the prodigal son, moving back I failed to reconnect with T and Lindley. With that being said, he forever holds a special place in my heart. My condolences to T and their sons. May our Creator grant you comfort and peace now and in the coming days. ✝️❤️
