A true man in every sense of the word. I can only aspire to be as talented, caring, and gracious as Thomas Burney. I was honored to call him my father-in-law, and to be part of his wonderful family which he loved and sacrificed so much for. RIP Mr. Burney!

We will all miss Tom Burney, he was wonderful man and great father , husband , brother-in-law to me. He was one he'll of a master carpenter, he could do stuff on building wood frame houses and any thing made of wood, that made me proud to be in his presence when I worked with him on ocassion on family projects and , I was amazed and humbled by his mastery and knowledge of the trade, such a pleasure to work with, as I am a brother in the construction trades. He will live in my memories as a very special role model for ever.

Get ready to work with Jesus Thomas, he will welcome your mastery,

My love to Jane, Tammy, Tanya and Terry
