Michael loved life and lived it to the fullest. He did more in his short 27 years than most do in a full lifetime. He will be missed terribly by all those whose lives he touched.

Memories of Michael

Mr. & Mrs. Burke & Burke family

I work with Kathy Fett here at DuPont, and I don't believe that you know me - but I want you to know I have cried for your son many times this week -and for you. Your loss must be overwhelming.

I wanted you to know that I do remember Michael. Our son Jaime is two years older than Michael -(he was a student in showchoir at FMHS). I remember your son from Central Lee showchoir because he was SO CUTE and you could tell he loved his music and had a gift of performing. Looks like he went on to do some wonderful things in his life, and had a lot of great experiences - and did things some of us only dream of.

What an awful tragedy that this has happened. He was such a bright star - I just wanted you to know that I feel very sad about his loss and that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
