To my Uncle Burrhead, who I will always remember as a stern but fun loving man. Who wrestled with my brothers when we were all small children and his words of “made for speed not heavy hauling”. I will miss your spirit but know that your body is healed and in pain no more. I love you and still hear us all say, “Burrhead wears army boots”.

I will certainly miss my dear uncle "Burrhead" I remember days of when my brothers and I were young, we would all wrestle in grandmothers small 2 bedroom home, in the living room laughing and jumping all over the place and of course grandmother yelling at all of us. Burrhead would always tell us he was "Built for Speed not Heavy Hauling", a phrase that I have incorporated into my daily use. There are so many stories that I will always cherish and remember, I will always remember your time in my life and never forget all those wonderful memories.

But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”—

Love and Miss You
