We will miss Jim greatly. We visited him at the Bluegrass Health and Rehab. He always requested us to sing "He's got the whole world in His hands" and "One day at a time" He loved tacos, fried oysters and last request a Whopper Jr.
Everyone should be so lucky as to have a friend such as James Butler. He was a compassionate, caring, true friend that I will sorely miss. I know he is in a better place.
