To my's ben a long time. The passing of Uncle Burl was a shock and of course with that comes sadness. I know he's in a much better place right alongside Aunt Mel and the both are smiling right now. My thoughts and prayers are with you (my cousins). I will always remember him as the kind and gentle man that he was. Men of his caliber are far and few between and he will surely be missed!!!!
God Bless....Lenet
