Dear Family and Friends of Lorayne Butler,On behalf of the Crestwood Care Center Branch of the Burch Creek Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, we extend our condolences to you at this time of mourning at the passing of Sister Butler. Lorayne regularly attended our branch meetings with her friends and took part while her health allowed. She had a sweet, quiet demeanor that we really appreciated.

She was a very special person with a very special spirit and we were fortunate to have become acquainted with her. It was a real privilege to serve Lorayne and she will truly be missed by the branch. Very sincerely,Gary and Arliss Smith Carlyle and Terry ShawBill and Barbara CookJeff GlumBill and Anita FordKelly and Nadine McGarryDorene LloydMargaret ColeCarol Shepherd
