Many years ago when my son was pre-school and early years of elementary school we lived next door to Burt (big house on SE B Street). He was so sweet and kind, a great guy. He would leave Easter baskets on the door step for my son who thought Burt was the greatest. Even when he moved across the street and a few houses down he'd always remember Easter. We have always thought so much of Burt and want you to know our thoughts and prayers are with you. It isn't easy losing one so great.
