  1. To the entire Burns Family, our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I have many fond memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.
    With love and prayers,
    Colleen and Greg Bruno

  2. Praying for the entire Burns clan. Betty was a special lady and a loving Aunt! I’m sure her reunion with Uncle Don and Tommy will be very special. Gaye & I so appreciated Bette and Don for their love, support and hospitality. A big virtual hug from the Jones familty for all of you

  3. We wish we could be in Chicago with all of you! We remember many many get togethers which happened on many of our travels back to the homeland, Chicago… Please know we are thinking about you and Aunt Betty… Someday soon, I hope, we can raise a glass to Aunt Betty together in the same room…
    Love and prayers, Rel, Jeremia, Faye, Benjamin, Matt and Mikaela…
