It was the early '70s at the Burkes' Cobblestone in Erieau, Ontario, when I first met Mrs. Burke. She rushed to the back door to greet me that summer day, in a whirlwind, and promptly stashed a Labatt 50 ale in my palm. From that day on--at St. Al's gym, MSU football games and subsequent trips to the Cobblestone--she'd slap my arm and in her cackling, high-pitched, sorta-singing way bark out with a touch or sarcasm, "Lennnnny Bokuniewicz." I've missed hearing that for years. Now, forever...

I'll never forget that night in 1976 when I had a costume party at the house I was renting on Rosemont in Detroit, and she crashed it with her friend, Mrs. Lewandowski. They wore fatigue jackets. And pull-over masks. And for hours I had no idea who they were because they did not utter a word. It was Mrs. Burke's idea, of course. I was certain they must be a couple of "Fordson chicks." What a surprise when they turned out to be two St. Al's moms from the 'hood.

It was astonishing to me that she (and her husband, Ed) would always treat me with some strange sort of underserved reverence. They'd ask me questions about college stuff and the business world, as though I had a special kind of wisdom. Which I did not. But it was always a blast to talk with her. Absorb her gibes. Party with her. And, yes, sing along with her while she played the organ on the front porch of the Cobblestone. I will always treasure those memories. My heartfelt condolences to the extended family of Burkes.

I would like to offer my deepest sympathy to family and friends of Inez. It's times like these when the loving promises of our Heavenly Father such as knowing that we can see our loved ones again can bring us comfort and soften some of the pain we feel in our hearts. 1 Thessalonians 4: 13,14

In the lilt of Irish laughter, we can hear the angels sing...... what a wonderful family! Her spirit will forever have a place in our hearts.
