Private Condolence

Please accept my deepest condolences to your family. I would like to offer encouragement to your family for the loss of your loved one. The Bible offers immense comfort and many wonderful promises from God foretelling an end to our enemy death. The scriptures at Isaiah 25:8 says, “He will swallow up death forever…”. Also at Revelation 21:4 it says, “And He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Please read these verses in your Bible and feel free to find additional comforting scriptures at

Dear Santarlas family:

I wish to convey my sincerest condolences to your entire family. Losing a loved one in death is one of the hardest things that anyone will ever have to deal with. There is a great hope held out to us for the future because God promises to bring those we lost back to life by means of a resurrection to a paradise earth, where sickness and death will be no more. I hope this brief message will bring you a measure of comfort in this difficult time.

My fondest memories started when I was quite a few years younger. Lol My loving godmother Lorraine and Butch would always be a part of my mother’s family tradition of celebrating Christmas Eve. I actually don’t remember holidays without Butch and Lorraine. We all shoved in my childhood home all together eat, drink, play games and all sing the 12 days of Christmas. Each having a partner in a solo part, Butch would sing out boldly and we would all laugh at the finish and enjoy each other’s company. As the years went by the families grew and we managed to all fit into two small rooms. We never had so much fun. Butch would never leave the table eating most of the night. My mother would make many traditional food and Butch would eat everything that was placed in front of him, even if he did not know what it was. Lol
Butch was always kind and loving to my mother , brothers and myself. When I was very young I spent time in their home, went to the shore with them and always felt welcome and safe. My hope is that Butch is now with his family and mine whom have passed feeling welcome and safe. I will miss Butch and will never forget all my fond moments we spent together as a family.

Thank you sister Linda for so beautifully articulating my fond memories of Butch also. Butch, Lorraine, and children, were a part of our family and life. We were blessed to share each Christmas Eve with Butch. He could definitely eat more oranjeni ( rice balls) then anyone Ive ever met. His smile was contagious. He left us far to soon. I know he is in heaven with Mom . She is assuredly feeding him rice balls and I'll bet Jesus is at that table too. Richard
