The Burt Family sends our heartfelt sympathies. My Dad, Jerry Burt coached David and my brothers (Butch and Brother) and let us twin girls tag a long. David was very special to our Dad and Butch as I know he is to so many people who knew him. Ms. Patsy, I'm sure David, your husband and my Dad are all rejoicing in heaven and for sure talking baseball. Please know that the Burt family has you in our thought and prayers!
