I've known Dr. Carlisle and Jenny for almost 20 years as my FAA doc. So sorry I missed the memorial service, Jenny and family.

It was an honor to get to know him, and always a pleasure to come in and see you for my physicals. Now I find out he was a fighter pilot to boot. Awesome.

Prayers for you and your family.

Sincerely,
Mike Marcum

I had known Burt for many years, my father ran the FBO at Winder ,Ga. from the early 60's to mid 80's. I first remember him flying a PT-22 then a c-195 and later on a Baron. Did not see him for a long time until I moved to Fayetteville, and later on with the QB's. We did have a few conversations. He will be missed, Blue Skies and Tail Winds to him.

Sincerely,
David Harwell
