The world is a sadder place this week with the passing of Don Burris. I had known Don for 30 plus years, having worked with him at Graves Cox. He was always a joyful person and fun to be around. I always enjoyed running across him at model railroad functions in the Lexington area.

Ann, We are so sorry to learn of the passing of your brother. He was always so kind to my grandparents when he would do work for them. We are keeping you in our prayers during this time.
