Our family is so sorry to hear about Mr. Burnett. He was such a sweet and loving man. He was very special to my six grandchildren at Keeley Elem School. They all loved him dearly and are sad to hear of his passing. They are now 23, 20, 20, 16 and twins 15. They still talk of how much they loved him and his caring for all the children. Mrs. Burnett you were married to a special man and our thoughts are with you.

Mr. Burnett watched over both of our girls as a crossing guard. He always had a smile and a wave to brighten your day.
