Dear Burns Family: My deepest sympathy for the family and friends of William. We will never get used to losing our loved ones in death because as Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, we were created with everlasting life in view. But may you find comfort in knowing that Almighty God has promised that soon he will swallow up death forever along with the pain that it brings. (Isaiah 25:8) God has also promised that he will return William to you as it says at John 6:40,"For this is the will of my Father, that everyone that recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day."

So sorry to learn of the passing of Father Burns. He married my husband Don and I at St. Francis of Assisi Church. He was so kind to us.I am sure he is resting peacefully in the arms of Our Lord.My deepest sympathy to his family at this sad time. Thank you Father Burns.
