Our family is deeply saddened by the news of Burls passing. He was a mighty fine man to know. It has been years since seeing Burl, but he was always a part of our extended family. God Bless Betty and family.
God Speed Burl.

Burl has been an inspiration both professionally and personally since I had the privilege of working with him at the AP in Spokane. He was truly a great man in all respects, and I'm deeply saddened by his death. My prayers are with his family for peace, comfort and thanksgiving for a life extremely well lived.

Betty, I will always cherish the years that I knew Burl and you. He was a gentleman's gentleman. God bless you and Jonathan.
