Christy, Jessica, Travis, & Mildred,
We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. It's hard to loose a family member, but knowing he is not suffering any more helps to ease the pain. Prayers, Moneik (Harty), Paul, & Mikaela Stephens, Black Hawk

Dearest Chris, I am deeply saddened to hear of your loss. I did not connect Burt with you as I only know you through the clinic. I don't know anything about your personal life. You are such a kind, caring and loving nurse/person that I can only imagine that Burt had a wonderful life while he spent his time on earth. May God's love comfort you at this very difficult time. Love and Prayers, Karen

Christy and family, We are so saddened to hear of Burt's passing. We of course know he is in a better place and free of the pain he has undergone but it sure doesn't make it any easier to say good-bye. I know you have many wonderful family memories to help you through these difficult days ahead. Take Care, we will not be able to attend the services but please know we will have you in our thoughts and prayers.
