Grandpa Burt was an honorable and caring soul. He loved his family, effortlessly trying to archive it and bring it together. He strived to be a better man through religion and fixing his own problems. He was always kind and gentle and would give you the shirt off his back if he could. A hard worker and a loving family man, something we should all strive to be. I love him, along with all his quirks, and will miss him greatly.
