For Lyndon,

I just wanted to remind everyone, that I still think of one of my heroes. Actually, there are 2 on my mind today. Lyndon King and Greg Hunter are on my mind. There really isn't anything else to say. I'm just thinking of my brothers. I'll never forget the things we did together, and I'm grateful for ALL of them...the good times and the bad times. I'm so grateful you both knew Jesus here; because, I know you NOW know Jesus face to face. God bless those you left behind you guys. Old man Burton (Go figure. I'm OLD now.) loves you both.
