Dear Burford family. I wish to give my deepest sympathy to your loss. Mr. Burford was my fourth grade home room teacher at the old Eastern Elementary school a.k.a Elkhorn High School where the east Frankfort Fire Station now stands. Mr. Burford as I remember him was a great teacher. Michael Hutcherson, Aaron and Sean's dad. God Bless.

I'm so sorry to hear about Mr. Burford. He was my teacher. He always remembered every student and spoke to them even if you weren't in his class that year. He was such a gentle and kind spirit. Always a smile for you. Talked in such a soft tone. We farmed on the family farm behind Stagg/Blanton's distillery now known as Buffalo Trace. We always discussed what we were growing on the farm and all the flowers Mom planted. Thinking of you in this difficult time. Pam Triplett Cloyd & Family
