Dear Wells Family, I don't know if you will remember me. My mother (Ruth Gidney Burt) & Eddie were 1st cousins. Growing up, my parents took us to Utah on family vacations almost every year. It was important to my Mom that we stop at the old house in Willard & see "Uncle Roy" & visit with Eddie & Janet & Frank & Berneil. I have such warm memories of both your parents, but especially your father. He was such a warm, kind man. Even after my parents passed away, he was thoughtful enough to reach out & stay in touch. Due to several moves over the past few years, I had lost contact with him. I decided to do an Internet search today & ran across his obituary. I feel so bad that I didn't know he had passed, and just wanted to let you know that he was very special to our family & he will be missed. Much love sent...Tracy Burt2121 Damien Ave., La Verne, CA 91750
