    Darlene and family, although we didn’t have the opportunity to get to know Butch as well as we would have liked to, it was obvious to us that he loved his family and was devoted to you all. There are no words that that will bring you comfort, but please know that we are praying for all of you at this devastating time. May God bless you with the comfort and peace that only He can provide.

    I knew the entire Hampton when I lived and worked in Mt. Pleasant, N.C. Butch was a fine person and I know he will be missed by his fellow Petsmart employees and all his friends and especially his family. My wife and I will be prayin during this time of grief.

    I knew Butch well from years of seeing him on Saturdays at the PetSmart in Aiken. He was very good to the Humane Society of McCormick County and the entire organization was very saddened by the news of his passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Hampton Family.
