    Our deepest condolences go to my Uncle Mike and the entire Burns family as well as the entire Rizzo family.

    “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also…” (St. John 14:2,3).

    I love you all and you are all in our prayers!
