Berry Burch’s Barber Shop, Laurens County

Thanks to Fate Miller for the identification. This was located next door to Alma Clark’s Store. And thanks to Dana L. Moore for sharing her memories: Sometimes a truly special human being comes along and touches the lives of so many. Berry Burch was my great uncle (my grandfather’s brother). Uncle Berry’s Barber Shop and Aunt Alma’s Store (she was really a cousin instead of an aunt) next door were such a huge part of my childhood. Uncle Berry cut hair for nearly 70 years. He was the truest example of a person who would literally give his last cent or the shirt off his back if he thought someone needed it. He’s been gone for almost 10 years now and he is missed each and every day. Thanks for sharing the picture of his Barber Shop.
