Dear Lynn, Trevor, Jordan and Julia
Our deepest sympathy goes out to your entire family, for the loss of your loving husband and father. We hope that fond memories of John will help soften your grief and that you will find peace. We remember going to your wedding many years ago and the years following, as you set up your home and then started your family. Our thoughts are with you, at this difficult time.
Love, Garth and Nancy

My thoughts and prayers are with The Burgess family. I pray God will comfort you.

From: Bob, Marion Brett
Relation: Neighbour for 10+ years

It is such a surprise to learn of John’s promotion to glory at such a relatively young age. Lynn, Jordan, Trevor, Julia, our remembrance of John were of his great love for his family, especially his pride in following successes in hockey by the three children. Several good coffee times at Tim’s too are fondly remembered, as he shared his journey with cancer, and his faith and confidence in the Lord Jesus so freely. His suffering here is no more. Our thoughts and prayer are for you to be comforted by God’s Spirit. Bob Brett

I would like to send my condolence to the Burgess family. I will always remember how Mr Burgess and his family welcomed me last Summer. The Lord calls him back so he watches over you now. May the Lord bless the Burgess family.

From: Mel Martens
Relation: patient

This was a good man who left us too early. He was a man of rare character. He had integrity, a great sense of humor and was always true to his principles. I believe he inspired those who were around him to be better people. I will miss him.

Relation: professionally

Just a note to let you know how so very sorry we are to hear about Dr. Burgess’s passing. A very kind and gracious person, and a huge loss for your family.

From: Wim Vermeulen
