  1. Dear Burke Family:
    I am so sorry for your loss. Your loved one’s death caught my attention because he was only 2 years older than me. Death is such an enemy. (1Corinthians 15:26) The Bible promises that soon there will come a time when death will no longer be. (Isaiah 25:8 and Revelation 21:3-4). If you would like to know more about the Bible’s wonderful promises, please visit and once again, please accept my sincere condolence. Christian Love, Margo Moore
