I grew up at St. Benedict just like the Burns family. I lived next door to the Steigers. I am younger than Donnie and older than Jack. I also go to St. Martha and remember Darlene bringing your mother to mass there. Jack was a great guy. Always happy to see you and enjoyed life. I will not be able to make mass as I just got out of the hospital with fluid around my heart and am on the way to get better. Jack, his family and all the Burns are in Anne and my prayers

So many memories of our friend, Jack . . . . All the cruises, Mackinac Island, all our trips to Las Vegas, the Derby Eve Breakfasts and Jack in his apron, the 50th wedding anniversary party, and Dominoes. He taught us how to play Dominoes. I know that was a challenge. We are sure going to miss him!

Our hearts are hurting!
