Dear Jerry, boys, and Butler siblings, So very sorry for your loss. Joyce was loved and well liked by many and she will be greatly missed. Due to the rain and flooding in many areas I will not be able to attend today. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Jerlean Butler Ramsey

Dear J.R ~ We are so sorry to hear the passing of your Mom. Seems like yesterday we were at Virginia Heights with her, she helped with our wedding and reception. Nice lady she was. Her icebox freezer cake is still in my recipe box ~ so good it is!!! Seems like yesterday we were all in Sicily together, yet it has been 8 years! I’m sorry we have lost touch ~ we hope you are well. If you get this, please drop us a line. We are moving to Germany this month, but hope to keep in touch with you.
From your friends ~ David and Kristie Kader
