Dear ,Betty i am so sorry for your loss .I was thinking about Dink chasing me down Bowles Rd.on his bike throwing water balloons at me laughing [with his big ol grin on his face].It is hard to believe that was 30 years ago.I guess in order for us to go on you have to believe the Lord took him home for some good reason.It certainly has left earth a sadder place without Dink in our lives.May God bless u and Tammy and Bud in your hour of need .
Love ,Bobby Burgess

I would like to offer my condolences again to all of Melvin's family and friends.
Although it's difficult to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory
help comfort you tomorrow!
