What a beautiful woman, Mrs. Burke was. I am very sorry to read of your loss. With her accomplishments, her love and joys, she was an amazing woman! I won't pretend to know what you're going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love, is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is, John 11:25, which says, "Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life." I hope that this verse will also comfort you and, I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved wife, daughter, sister and friend. Sincerely, Meryl, -

Our Deepest Sympathy. I often speak of the great neighbors we had growing up in Griffith, Indiana. The Pattons lived right next door. I will never forget the kind family and fun we had. So sorry to hear of the loss. Heaven is lucky to have Teri. Lover, Janet and Family
