David Burdette also known as Papa to me was one of the best grandfathers any grand child could ever have! One memory I have of my grandfather was this Christmas. Each year we do Christmas with Papa and all the adults were sitting at the dinning doom table and I went to the bathroom to get little rubber bands and when I came out I put all if his hair in little pigtails. He looked really weird! Another memory was when he took my mom and I on his jet ski and his hat flew off so when we went to turn around to get it the three of us all leand the same way and the jet ski fell over! he was the best Papa ever!
We miss you Papa.

David Burdette also known as Papa to me. My Papa was the best grandpa any grandchild could ever had! When ever he would come visit my mom(Amy Burdette) and I, he would all ways let me put on his cowboy hat. One of my most precious memory with my Papa was when we went on his jet ski with him. we were going really fast and his hat fell of so we turned around to get it my mom, Papa, and I all leaned the same way... and we fell! I remember being scared and not wanting to be eaten by "sharks". that was fun but I've never gotten on a jet ski since. another memory was when my mom and I went to his old house in Michigan and the floors were really slippery I fell and Papa took me down to the basement and showed me his car collection and gave me a fire truck and a police car. I still have them to this day. He was the best Papa ever!

David and I were on several committees/projects together at Central Michigan University, but we shared something even more important. We had both experienced the death of a child. We talked about our experiences, and David participated in our Compassionate Friends memorial service that is held in December each year. I was sad when he retired and moved away. And I was so sorry to read of his passing.
