Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry for your loss of your beloved father -- and our community's distinguished gentleman. You remain in my thoughts and prayers.

My thoughts and prayers to the family of Captain Burrow. God Bless!

On behalf of the men and women of the Prince George County Police Department, our thoughts and prayers will be with the entire family.

To Richard & Frank,

I met your father, Capt. Burrow, when I was a teenager and you had just moved to Salem. From day 1, I was graciously greeted and made welcome. Capt. Burrow has always been one of the men I have admired the most during my life. I am sorry for your loss. However, I know in my heart John was a Christian man, who loved the Lord. You can take solace in the absolute fact that whatever his sins were, they have been forgiven and he is in Heaven waiting for you...

Richard, Peace and love to your family.

Your father was very supportive of us during the D-Day project. It was a genuine pleasure getting to know him. He will be missed. God bless.

Captain Burrow was a strong and wonderful man. It was a great pleasure working along side of him at Sixth Division Headquarters. He was a very caring man underneath his exterior and a very fair minded gentleman. My condolences to his wonderful sons and their families.

My sincere condolences to the entire family at this difficult time.

John Burrow a decent and caring man. May he rest in peace. Paul Yengst, FBI (Retired)
