You were such a joy in all of our lives, and I am so lucky to have you as my family. Though you passing has been very rough on me, I know you are in a better place without pain, and for that I am grateful. I love you so much and I know you are looking down on us and will be guiding me through life. We will meet again, and until then, know I love you so much.
I am so sorry we could not be there in person, but know our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the family. I love you so much and I am here for you in this difficult time. Lean on your family, and let us take care of you like you have taken care of all of us throughout the years. We’re here for you Papa. We love you so much and as soon as we get back we will come see you!

To the Burke family, although our time was brief at Fisher Chapel, memories of all you are forever part of my teen years and beyond. Paul, you and your children are in our thoughts and prayers. I will always be grateful that our paths crossed and for a time we walked together on lifes journey. Love in Christ.

Paul and Family: I was so sorry to read about your loss. Murky was a very special Lady, I will always remember her smile and the Love she always showed to me and my family. I am sure that although she is gone from this earth that she is rejoicing in Heaven.
I pray for God to surround you with his comfort during your time of grief.

Juanita was a wonderful person, and is half of one of the greatest partnerships and love stories, I have known.
I know you will miss her, as will I. Please know your family is in my prayers.

Proverbs 31:30
Charm and grace are deceptive, and beauty is not lasting, but the woman who reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord, she shall be praised!

Murky was more than a friend. She loved us unconditionally! Paul we pray for you and your family during this difficult time. We rejoice in the knowledge that she is with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
