A Tribute to William Burnes on March 13th.

My big bro has been cancer-free in heaven for 7 years now, and Grandpa hasn't had to deal with his bad heart for 57 years. I am remembering these great men today and how ironic that they both died on March 13th, exactly 50 years apart. I am so grateful that I will see them again someday. This is where my family history journey began. There were too many coincidences that left me wondering, and wanting to learn more. Now I know the truth and continue to learn about my family history; I love "connecting the dots". Let's take a moment to remember those who have gone before us, and are now free from their pains and sufferings.

  1. Wow how strange. Both with the same name and died in the same day. You wrote a beautiful tribute to them.

    1. Betty, Thank you!! Yes, things add up when we start connecting the dots with our ancestors.
