Its getting close to the time of year again! Nicole is hard at it getting the blood drive ready in honor of you. I had another child and as I told you he would be named Alex because of my other sons imaginary friend. Now with the loss of you its that much more special to us. The girls are turning into young ladies! I know you are so proud of them and Nicole. Just know we all still love and miss you dearly! Until we see you again friend!

Master Deputy Burdette,
As another summer draws to a close, I find myself reflecting on the time I spent with your wife and girls at camp. I was lucky enough to be the mentor in your older daughter's cabin again this year. What a wonderful, kind and beautiful young women she is. Your daughters did not fail to bring a smile to my face a single day that we were there. Their love for you, their mom and each other is evident. May you continue to watch over them and help guide them through their loss. God Bless

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Thanks also for giving the gift of life to others through your organ donation.

I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know their pride and pain are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your family and friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.

Master Deputy Burdette,

I had the honor of spending this past week with your family at COPS Kids Camp. Nicole and the girls are amazing and continue to honor your memory. The girls are confident, friendly and kind and look like their Daddy. The hit of the week for many of the mentors is hearing the girls talk with their sweet southern accent. I know they will continue to honor you, and are so proud of you and your service and sacrifice to the community you served.

May God comfort you and keep you close while you watch over your family and those that continue to serve. God Bless.

I visit the odmp website often and read about the heroes who gave up their lives to protect ours. My husband is a former Deputy Sheriff of Anderson County, SC and he often talks about how much he enjoyed serving the people of South Carolina. Rest in peace Master Deputy Burdette and may God keep your family, friends and co-workers in his loving Hands.
