Mary & Joe Butler left a message on April 6, 2009:
I have very fond memories of Phil from my early childhood. He was always so kind to my mom and dad and made a point to keep in touch with us. He certainly fits the description of the father below. A husband and father is a caretaker. The primary mission of caretaker, with the support of his wife, is to teach his children how a man of honor, integrity and faith acts in the world. He teaches them what they ought to take seriously in life. In his providing a safe place for them—that is, a circle within which people can be trusted—he shows them what they must do one day to protect their own families and church and community. If a mother helps her children master the art of living with and loving other people—especially within the family—a father leads them to see how they must care for themselves and the world they have inherited and what they must do to preserve the family—and the church—and the city. A father shows his children what the world is like—while at the same time keeping them safe from it. In doing so, he prepares the way so that his children can one day take their own places in the world. In his highest form of care taking a father leads his family to the Lord. All of his fatherly providing and preparation aim ultimately at this goal. So essential is the father’s preparation of the way to the Lord—that men often die before their wives so that they may go to prepare a place the for rest of the family. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Joe and Mary Butler and Family
