Not sure what to say?

To the Burris family, you have my sincere condolences. When someone falls asleep in death (Ecclesiastes 9: 5,10) the memories we have of them become our most precious treasure. May those memories comfort you as well as Gods promise at John 6:40.

Sincere condolences are extended to the grieving family and friends. Be comforted by precious memories shared together, prayers, and the hope held out by our Heavenly Father at Hos:13:14

My sincere condolences to the Burris family. What a wonderful man. I remember him running in the morning at 89 Salem Road. Taking Raymond and me to the gym. How he loved raising the American flag on the beach in Madison. I even went to him several times for eye exams. A life well lived. Dancing once again with Mrs. B.

Loving thoughts to the Burris family from the adult children of Carolyn and John Carnevali. My father and stepmom Carolyn loved your parents very much. I remember your dad as incredibly handsome! They were great friends. Our hearts go out to you at this time of loss. We know that your loving memories will bring you comfort now and in the future. With Sincere Thoughts of Love From, the Children of Carolyn and John Carnevali
