My deepest sympathy to the Butler family. Herman was a member of the C&S Bank family for many years and a part of the Retiree Luncheons after retirement. He was always so personable and helpful and loved by all. God bless all of you!

To the Butler Family, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I am going to miss your father as I missed your mother, as I have always felt to be a part of the family. When I heard of Mr. Herman passing, it carried me back to all the memories I have had with the family and the nickname he always called me. Keep your hands in the hands of the Heavenly Father and He will carry you through. Much love.
