Uncle Burt

Thank you for the great times we shared. The get togethers at Christmas time are priceless.

I always have thought of you as the "cool" Alexander brother.

Save me a spot in heaven.

So many of my best childhood memories are of my "Pappy" Making cream cheese and crackers together..listening to him sing at Christmas.. the way he would say "I reckon" lol He was the greatest man Ive ever known. Always sweet and loving. I will never forget how lucky i am to have had him as my Grandpa. Id like to think he is with my Mommy and Uncle Jay... watching over us.

I love you Grandpa! Always and Forever <3>

Bye Dad!

It is hard for a son to say goodbye to his Dad; taught me how to fish, hunt, and many other things.

My Dad was not a Saint....he was a man, a man of his time...he enjoyed country music (George Jones in particular) and having a good time. He believed in family traditions and as circumstances and time wore them away he was not happy.

There is an emptiness in my heart that my sister, brother, and now my Dad are gone; but my memories are full.

I love you Dad....I love you!

Bye Dad!

When a son loses his father it leaves an empty place in his heart....but my memories are full.

You realize that with Jerry and Jay gone this leaves me as the undisputed living washer champion of the world.

My God I will miss you!

Love you always

Dick

My Dad was the best man in the world. He and I could share anything and we could talk about anything. I find myself lost without him. Dad, save a place for me in heaven and give Jerry and Robin and Jay a big hug and kiss from me. I love you so very much and I am proud you were my Dad.
Love Always,
Sis
