To Burns family and others,

Words cannot convey what I would like to say. Mike wasn't in my life as long as he was in yours. But he definitely made an impression on me. (as I'm sure he did with others) Please know I am grieving with you all.

RIP Ferno. Love ya kid.

I didn't know Mike, but I respect anyone who volunteers their time and tireless devotion to membership in a Volunteer Fire Dept. I encourage people to support family-owned businesses like Adolfs Old First Ward Tavern. These businesses comprise the fabric of a community, operate on shoe-string profits and have been devastated lately. Rest in Eternal Peace Sir, and thank you for your service.

Dear Mary,
I am so very sorry for your loss. No words can’t explain how you are feeling now but I wanted to let you know, I am thinking of you.
