Dear Mrs. Cardwell,
My father roomed with your husband at Michigan State University. He was saddened by your loss. He wanted to let your family know you are all is in his prayers as you grieve.
I was truly sadden to hear about Burton. The two of you bring back so many fond memories. Burton used to work out with me when I was playing baseball in Pony and Colt league. I was a center fielder and he would hit balls to me for hours; always saying that all fly balls can be caught. I was a center fielder and he felt that I could catch a ball even if it was hit to left or right field. He as a real slave driver but I was all the better for it!!
I remember meeting you when I visited MSU to meet with the track coach about a scholarship. I was so impressed. I thought, if she is typical of the females at MSU, I was in for a fun ride. I did find a southern beauty, Helen Middleton.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

My prayers are with the Cardwell Family at the loss of their loved one. Dr, Cardwell's wife and I get our hair fixed at the beauty. May God bless you at this time.
It is with great sorrow that we acknowledge the passing of Dr. Burton Cardwell. We join with others who have been keenly affected by this loss in sharing our remembrances. We believe that anyone who knew Burton, knew there were not many like him. Always warm and personable, he had a way of making you feel important. Burton conveyed a presence that inspired confidence - he was a gentleman's gentleman. His agile mind, coupled with his keen sense of humor rarely left you without a broad smile on your face. Burton's good nature was always on display in the form of a kind word, or his willingness to share his knowledge and wisdom. To the family of Burton Cardwell and those who knew him, we mourn with you and pray for your strength in this difficult time. We feel blessed to have been counted among his friends. Though nothing can lessen our sadness at his passing, the priceless memories of who he was will live on in each of us.
How deeply saddened I was to hear of the loss of such a great man. The family truly has some wonderful memories some of which I share.Life is so precious and we have to enjoy each day with our loved ones. I know that Burton loved his life and family and he enjoyed each day with them. Hold on to those glorious memories and in time you will smile when you think of them. He will always be right there with you close in heart.
I was introduced to Dr. Cardwell by my friend Laura Allen at a critical time in my life and career as a young scientist. He was an instant role model for me, giving his good counsel freely and warmly. Later, as have I mentored other young Black scientists, I have tried to model the goodness, care, and genuine encouragement that I received from Dr. Cardwell. My heart goes out to his family and friends who I know will surely miss and long for him. May your memories and love of him bring you comfort.
I will miss seeing his beautiful pictures, smiling face. I just loved working with, one of my best customers! He loved Sharon so much.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Sharon and family I am so very sorry for your loss. What a joy he was and my life is better because I knew him. My love to you and pray the Lord will give you comfort and peace.
MR CARDWELL WILL BE GREATLY MISSED, HE WAS ALWAYS A JOY. WITH DEEPEST SYMPATHY

Our prayers and deepest sympathy are with you.
