In memory of my dear friend Burting.
Was very difficult for me to work on his picture I will greatly miss him.
His wife came to our house telling us that he had just passed away. My wife and I were very shocked of the news he seemed to be in very good health. He was out fishing when other fishermen noticed he was slumped over and his boat was a drift. He was rushed to a hospital, but died a few hours later of a stroke. Ironically it was on his 66th birthday!
He was a good man very honest with a great sense of humor and a good provider for his family, a very responsible person. He was a fisherman, boat builder and carpenter.
His wife is older than him, now is worried about how to take care of two daughters and two grandchildren in her care.
They never had much an old TV three light bulbs in the house. Never owned a refrigerator or cook stove. Does all their cooking outside with firewood and does all the washing by hand.
I’ve started a donation pool for his family to help with funeral and hospital expenses.
I was working on this for some time now doing some fixes of The Blacksmith Shop thought now would be a good time to post it in his memory.
