Burgett Family,

Our older sister, Gerry Frances Tate, was a childhood friend of Fr. Burgett's sister Jeannie! Both of them lost their lives tragically in car accidents as very young women.

We remember Forrest Wayne, Robert, and Rodney was children/teens in Overland Park.

Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers!
