Not sure what to say?

jess and charles,

visitation was great-red's attire, great pics of red and friends and family, his early days and his loving smile which i have up on my wall-it always got me. red taught me many things-most importantly how to make friends and nurture them for a lifetime. in my phone calls to him over the last 2 years, i always told him how proud he was my uncle.. whether it was his lockhart high football team reunion in lockhart,or players i met over the years, they all told me ...

Red was responsible for me being in education. He offered me a job to come coach with him in Bryan in 1957 and I have been in education ever since.
I am so sorry about your loss.

Jess -
We had a busy week and somehow missed checking the papers last week. We just found out about your dad. We are both so sorry to hear about Coach Red. I will always remember that sweet, happy smile and winning spirit that he carried with him everywhere he went. He always had something kind and encouraging to say and I will always remember him, even from High School, as one of my most favorite people. May God bless you and your family and bring you peace and comfort. God has a gem...

Red was a true Texas Treasure....I have fond memories of him growing up in Bryan...We will miss him and his many stories and quotes... I still use many of them today...He was a great man and raised a great family..

During this time of sorrow may you be comforted by Gods promise that he is near to those that are broken at heart. And those crushed in spirit he saves. (Ps 34: 18) May the thought of seeing your loved one again bring you peace. Acts24:15

Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.

Though a Tech graduate and a Longhorn lover, I considered this consumate Aggie among the best friends I ever had. I shall miss him greatly.

To the Entire Burditt Family - Please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of Mr. Burditt. I was truly saddened to hear of his passing. He was a wonderful person who always had a smile on his face and tried to brighten the day. He will truly be missed.

May God be with you and comfort you during this most difficult time. Coach Burditt was our football coach and history teacher while I was in high school~a great person! Thanks for the memories, Coach Burditt...GOD SPEED!
