    Clyde Butcher had a stroke

    I just received an email advising Clyde had a stoke and is hospitalized. The text follows:


    We would like to thank everybody so much for all the support and kind words. Every day Clyde has been opening some of his cards, it's giving him so much inspiration!! All this positive energy is certainly helping Clyde remain focused and determined to get back to doing what he loves and sharing it with you all!

    Note from Jackie...
    My father (Clyde) had his stroke 3 weeks ago, at that time my mom and I were in shock; we were uncertain of the severity of the situation and how things would progress. Last week we decided to let folks know what had happened and we are so glad we did! Wow, the prayers, support and love all of are are feeling is helping. Dad's spirits are high and we hope he will be coming home by the end of this week, He is now able to stand and walk a few steps with a walker. There is still a lot of work and therapy for him to do... But we are hoping by the end of the summer he will be back to his photography. Thank you again for all your prayers, it means so much to all of us.
    We will continue to keep you updated on Clyde's progress.

    If you would like to send Clyde a letter feel free to address it to:

    Clyde Butcher -Venice Gallery & Studio
    237 Warfield Ave, Venice FL 34285

    Please keep him in your thoughts. Thanks.

    Mike

    Sad news, but it's good to hear he's recovering. My prayers for Clyde and his family.
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    UPDATE from the Gallery:

    Clyde is still recovering from his recent stroke on May 6th, he is now home and continuing his recovery and rehabilitation training. He is inspired and focused thanks to all the gracious and wonderful support he has been receiving -- thank you all so much!! We all hope that by the end of the summer Clyde will be out there doing what he loves... Photographing and helping spread awareness of the importance & beauty our environment possesses.

    The Naples Daily News interviewed Clyde after his incident, it's a nice and light hearted article. View the interview here.

    Here's to a full recovery, healthy eating, and exercise, so that he can continue making photographs!

    If I were younger, I would volunteer to be Clyde's mule.
    But I suspect I am older than he is.

    Get well, Clyde. We love you and Niki!

    I think I'm about his age, but I'll still be his mule, maybe a Llama
