Not sure what to say?

We respectfully send our deepest condolences to David's family
RB Railway Group Inc.

I had the honor and pleasure serving with Major Burns with the 372nd Eng Gp in Balad Iraq (LSA Anaconda). He was a good man and will greatly be missed. To his family, you have my deepest sympathy and my prayers go to you. From my family to yours and the Commo section that served with him in Iraq, we salute you. I apologize for my late comments, I was searching online for those who I served with and came across this. I am sorry for your loss. Sgt Hays

Doris and Clara, I'm sorry for adding my comments so late..I guess I didn't want to believe it was true. Dave was a special person in my life and at the time of our closest friendship he helped me in more ways that I could ever explain but it's safe to say that he was my mentor, my leader, my friend and a man I looked to for inspiration. I'm so glad Dave was a groomsman at my wedding and I wish I would have stayed in closer contact over the years..but we never think about those things until...

Doris and Clara,

I am praying for you today.

Jayne, Eric, John, Andrew & Mariella Balch

My heart breaks for the entire Burns family at the great loss of Dave. May God continue to help you all through the grief of his passing. My memories of Dave and Doris are from a wonderful restaurant in Naperville Illinois they were always the BEST couple to see walk through the door cause you just knew the laughter would follow. To this day I often drink "Warsteiner" Beer and fondly recall great times with Dave and now the Warsteiner opener that he gave me will be even more...

My condolences to the Burns Family,

No word can express my sorrow upon receiving this news this morning.
I met Dave while playing together in a railway golf tournament.
I became a customer and I considered him as a friend.
It was an honor for me to meet this honorable gentleman.
He will be missed.

Doris, I didn't know Dave but after spending the past 15 minutes reading all the sentiments and memories of him, it's obvious he was a special person. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I just learned of David's death. We went to school together. I remember him as a young man with a good sense of humor and a great friend. He will be missed.

Without my knowing it at the time, Dave was a great mentor, and his example has stuck with me over the last twenty years. My prayers are with you all.
