Your Hug Meant the World

Nobody else held me so tight

Or made me feel so right

No one's eyes shined so bright with love

As my mom, who is now high above.

- Tamsen Butler

Our precious mother gave her time and love to her family and friends. She had the gift of listening and was always ready to give good advice. She was truly a joy to be around. In her passing she leaves us a legacy of love, wisdom and guidance. She will be greatly missed but her presence lives on through those whom she touched. She led her family well in faith, patience, and love. She instilled the value of family and strength in everyone fortunate to have met her.
