Our world just lost a wonderful, gentleman. I always admired Clint for his
commitment to his family, his work, and his community. My sincere sympathies to
his family. He's with Brad now.

Saddened to hear of this loss but very grateful for the impact Clint had on my
father Weston Breshears. Dad worked for Clint in his print shop when Dad was in
high school. The whole Butler family influenced Dad and, as a result, his
children. What a blessing! Comforting thought that Clint is having a reunion
with all those dear ones gone before to be with the Lord. What a day that must

Helen and family sorry to hear of the passing Clint. Prayers and thoughts with
you and family.

Betty and Helen: I remember Clint from his basketball days in high school and on
the infield at second base or shortstop on the Lamar Town Team. He was always a
friend to me and a model for behavior, traits he no doubt learned growing up in
the Butler and Jeffries families. It was a special treat to reconnect with Clint
when the family moved back to Lamar. I should mention also my appreciation to
dad, Lester, for his help as Circuit Clerk when I began to practice law.

Although Clint and our family lived only a block away from each other since they
moved back to Lamar, I could always count on a wave and friendly face. The
times I DID get to visit with Clint, few others had that easy going, pleasant,
inviting personality that draws people to them as Clint demonstrated. Clint I
am sure experienced the highs and lows this life on earth often presents us, and
yet remained faithful to The LORD. His family I always admired and having grown
up some around Larry, I always felt blessed to see them and visit. He will be
missed but as others have said, as Christians, we will see him again.
