Re: [towerrat] Burt Edwards "Lost but not forgotten" [In reply to] Can't Post

I just got that very bad news from Didier a friend who was at Eloy for the diamond event. It is a very sad day. I met Burt at Eloy in 2002 for the 300 way. We were on the same wacker. Burt was a very nice guy. I always had the pleasure to meet him. We met again for the 400 way and kaleidoscopes at Deland. I will miss him. Play and fly with the angels for ever. JM from France.

Any news on a funeral or memorial service for Burt? Myself and a bunch of other jumpers from the old United Parachute Club are interested...

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. I believe I first met Burt at a Herd Boogie between 1993 and 1995 and ran into him when he visited X-Keys through the mid 90s to early 2000's. I did not know him too well but he was fun to be around and always smiling. Truly a nice person.

Burt and I were teammates in 16-way last year. I didn't know him too well, but I can say that he was a very good skydiver, a reliable teammate, and as everyone else has said, a really nice guy. My condolences to the family.

Blue skies, Burt. You will be missed.

Patrick

Goodbye Burt, my friend. I'm glad we had a chance to have a few laughs together in those last couple of days. Big ways won't be the same without your friendly smile and great stories. Fly free, brother.
My condolences to Burt's family; it was brave of you to come to Eloy and meet us. I hope you left knowing how much we loved him too.

>I'll never forget walking in from the landing area with Burt and JP after completing a 100 way. We were all full of ourselves about it. Burt said to JP "Not bad for 98 white guys.' <

Wow, that flashed me back to jumping with the two in Z-Hills...

Never had a bad jump, always had a fun time, with Burt. I'll probably think of him, during the climb, on future big-ways...

So, be careful JP! I want to do some more jumps with you.

Check's in the mail....

Never gets easier saying good-bye to great friends. I was shocked and saddened to hear the news, but fortunate to have done many, many big-ways with Burt while he was with us in this life. Rest easy, brother.

  To a great guy, I am sure you were looking down on us wishing you could have just one more, as we raised our glasses to you. I will miss you as will many others. It just won't be the same on the big ways without you. I guess JP will have to make sure HE isn't the last one to the dirt-dive. Who the hell am I supposed to room with now on the big-ways?
Your buddy and fellow pilot, Pete
