Thank you so much for your service to the people of this great country so that we might live free!
You were a beloved cousin to my mother, Josephine Toombs Hines. She is very saddened by your passing.
We all so enjoyed your visit to Seminole a few years back when we all got to share a meal and a wonderful visit.

Rest in peace with your precious wife!

John and Alice were our neighbors in Pflugerville for many years, great people. John shared from his garden and often helped with feeding my sons show animals while we were at out of town stock shows.
After we sold our land The Burns moved to Georgetown and a few months later we also moved here.
The were great people.
