Burke Family,

Very sorry for your loss. I’ve known Greg for over 10 years. He has always spoken about his mother in the highest regards and about how much his mother loved to be active. Please accept my families thoughts and prayers, and find comfort knowing that she is now with our Heavenly Father and you will one day be with her again.

God Bless you all,

Jeffrey, Natalie, & Annabelle Angotti

I am very sorry for your loss. something that may give the family a little comfort is found in Acts 24:15 “There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous.” This has helped comfort me when I have loss someone I love. I hope it can bring some comfort to you.
