We loved Mr. Burcham. He lived down the road from us ever since we moved there many years ago. Every time he came by and we were outside, he would blow his horn and wave, or he would stop and talk a bit...When wed see him at Walmart, he would say Hello neighbor. He will be greatly missed. Since the Covid 29 virus went rampant, we didnt see him much. We loved Mr. Burcham. Prayers going up for his family during this time of loss....Bryant & Vicki Terrell
