    One of the nicest, honest gentlemen we ever met. As a young growing family, his advice and service on our very used vehicles saved us many times. We always considered him a good friend.

    I am so sorry to hear about Burl. I had the pleasure of helping him with his phone for many years, at Walmart. He was truly a special man. He was one of the kindest people I have ever met. He had a way of making everyone feel special. He will be greatly missed. Prayers for his family.

    Burl I always looked forward to every phone call and visit! I enjoyed helping you with your phone. I absolutely enjoyed letting you meet my son and letting him mow your grass. I carry the bible you gave me everywhere. I truly will miss the friendship we developed. May you rest in peace! Lois and family I will pray for comfort and peace.
