Much of Saturday was spent helping with and attending a wake across the road for a life long resident on our road and a long time personal friend of our family. Richard Burch‘s parents, Thelma and Archie, moved into the house years ago right after marriage and Richard was born in the house across the road. He only moved 1/4 mile south after he got married and lived there for the rest of his life. Richard Burch’s brother lives in the family homestead today. The four generations of the family is the salt of the earth. About 180 family, friends, and neighbors stopped in for the wake and meal.
