To the Burke Family:
It is with a sad hart that I read ofBernie's recent death.
I wasa teammate of his at BC- the hockey team of '46 & '47.
We shared many great memorieds together with the Songin's and the Ceglarski's over the years at BC. A wonderful dad, a devoted veteran, and a truly wonderful gentleman. He will be dearly missed but not forgotten.
Our prayers and thoughts are with your family. I shall always a remember my great teammate in my daily masses.

To the Burke Family:

My sincere condolences. Bernie was a wonderful caring person. No matter what time of day or night Bernie was always available to fill a perscription or anything else you needed if you were sick. He was a corner stone to the families in Newton Corner he will never be forgotten for his warm smile and generous nature. God bless! Eleanor Desmond Miele

Rest in peace Mr Burke! You were a great mentor and friend to the neighborhood.

Bernie,
You will be truly missed. My family will always be grateful for your kindness when you ran your drug store. I also enjoyed teasing you with our rivalry between Boston College and Northeastern University. Rest In Peace,

I met Bernie going to BC hockey games with my Uncle James Edgeworth. Bernie was always so gracious. He truly cared about people and it showed. I will never forget him. It was an honor getting to know him. My deepest sympathies.

Bernie was the epitome of the neighborhood merchant that made the pre turnpike Newton corner such a great place to be a kid. You could always get an extra pump of vanilla in your coke if he was working the soda fountain or a bit more ice cream in your frappe. A good man and a good guy all around.

We will all miss Bernie at Worthington, he was a real gentleman and a good friend. He will sleep with the Angels. Joe O'Rourke.
