Burdette and Becky were wonderful people to know.
I and my dad worked with them at king milling co.
Burdette lived a good and faithful life.
I can see him giving Becky a big hug.
God Bless.

I’m so sorry to hear of your father’s passing . Right after your”mother passed, I went and saw your father and Bella…. They both where the kindest people, from the beginning of our relationship when they contacted me About purchasing a puppy. They both where so excited, we kept in contact as soon as i knew my female Maltese was pregnant. I sent them pictures of the puppies the day they were born and several each week as your parents waited until they could come and pick out Bella. They explained to me all the new baby puppy things they had already purchased. The day they picked Bella up was like getting a new grandchild. I knew how much they both enjoyed and loved Bella. I even had stopped by to visit all 3 of them. It just saddens me so much to loose 2 such wonderful people that I grew to know. Julie Crane

I’m sorry to hear of Burdette’s passing. For several years I brought my classes from Perry to tour the courthouse. Burdette was a gracious tour guide with a wealth of knowledge!  He held my students’ attention with his stories.  He even let them climb to the top and look out the windows.  Such wonderful memories!
