    I want to say Good-Bye to John. I am going to be unable to attend an afternoon wake. I am saddened by his death. Growing up with him he was sort of my guardian angel and although it has been a long time since I’ve seen him I will remember him always. My deapest sympathy goes out to the entire family.

  2. Mike & Debbie Deegan says:

    To the Burke family we want to give you our heartfelt condolences and especially to Lori who has been in my heart these last few months. Mike & I loved John and have been through good & bad with the stubborn Burkey, but who had a heart of gold. We will treasure having him at our new house numerous times near his death along with the wonderful pictures that will be memories forever. John, you have that chair reserved the cottage in your favorite spot, too.

    Love, Mike & Deb
