He leaves a wife and seven children, one son, and six daughters, also two brothers and three sisters. He professed faith in Christ and joined the Missionary Baptist Church 37 years ago, and has been a faithful and constant worker since. He came to Arkansas from Mississippi some 35 years ago.
We, the people of Sulphur Spring Baptist Church (Pickles Gap) and not only the church, but all the community at large, are sadly bereaved our dear friend, benefactor, and on account of the untimely death of faithful brother in Christ and as an expression of our grief, be it
Resolved, First that we recognize and acknowledge our great loss, in Brother Butts' death, but our loss is his eternal gain, and when our church is gathered into glory, Brother Butts will fit gloriously into his same old beloved place among us, all one sanctified church and community in Christ.
That we, his friends try to comfort his sorrowing loved ones, as he would have us do.
That we, as a church, ever keep Brother Butts in memory, and try to live more like he lived in the simple childlike faith of Christ, doing good to all mankind, and saying harm of no one, always helping others bear their burdens, and always cheerful under all circumstances.
That in extolling Brother Butts for his blameless life, we do not forget the true source of all his goodness. It was Christ in him and Brother Butts gave himself so wholly to him, that Christ ruled his every thought and deed.
That we publish these resolutions in our county papers, also send a copy to his old house in Mississippi, and put a copy on our church record.
