Thomas C. Burkett
June 9, 1970 - December 1, 1991 You are lovingly remembered by family and friends.
May your courage inspire those silenced by fear;
may your kindness inspire those silenced by greed
and hardness of heart to speak the truth.
And trust us, Son,
though your jaw is broken,
your story is told.
Love, Mom and Dad
- Note from contributor: I have saved his obituary for almost 20 years.
His smile, his story have always stayed with me;
along with hoping for the truth for his family and friends.
