So sorry to hear of the passing of Kenny. We recall the few but quality times we spent together. Remembering the trips to Cape BRETON, when we were all soo young and getting to know each other. Kenny ,s stories have been repeated many times with our family, Prayers are with Cecila kids, and Billy and Winnie. Gone but never forgotten. Stay strong.

My heart goes out to whole family. I still hold dear the times I shared with your family as a young girl. Your dads humor, smile and stories was the Burgess way. I am sure he is entertaining them in heaven right now, with my Dad and Rusty.
I am sorry I can't be there. God bless you all.

So sorry I can't be with you today, but you
know I share your grief for your wonderful brother, Kinnon, that I know you loved so much. I remember him as a cute little boy when you and I were in eighth grade. We are in our eighties today and grew old with the love of sisters all these years. God bless you and your family. I love you, Winnie,
Your friend forever, Dottie Hogan

To my baby brother Kinnon (Kenny) You were a blessing always to me, I recall the wonderful day this little baby boy came home from the Cahill House Hospital on Jan. 2, 1936 to Antrim St., Cambridge.. I thought he would always be here with us and I will share many great memories of him growing up, he Gave many entertaining moments, which those who know him will not doubt. You will live in my heart. My love and prayers for Cecilia and their wonderful family. May your great memories help to sustain you through this difficult time.

Love, Aunt Winnie

You never failed to tell me I was a "Good Guy" every time I saw you, even when I didn't believe it. Thank you for believing in me so many years ago. Your guidance and kindness were a Gift from God. Thank you.
