    I graduated from Patrick Henry also, a year behind your youngest brother Jack, who left this world a year or two ago and is with you. Growing up I remember that it seemed all the Bursaw's were so big and tall, larger then life like but then we kids were young. I just wanted to say thank you for giving your, all for your sacrifice was not in vain and it shall always be remembered. We thank you Clarence Bursaw.

  • Remembering Junior

    I was a neighbor of Clarence and we knew him as "Junior". He and I were in the same class at Patrick Henry High School in north Minneapolis. At our 50th class reunion we honored our veterans and he was one of the honorees. I attended his funeral and felt so sad for his grieving family. Thank you Junior for your ultimate sacrifice.
