R.I.P., Harrison Burke

July 30, 2011

Harrison Burke, the beloved 5 year old son of Ron and Christine Burke, and twin brother of Peyton, passed into eternal life on July 25 from a tragic accident at Sylvan Lake. I had the honour of visiting with Ron and Christine yesterday. Our original thought was to hold a Memorial Service for Harrison at St. Paul’s on August 6, but in our discussions together we soon realized that St. Paul’s would be far too small a venue. I was able to arrange for the Service to be at Central United, which seats 700. The Service will be led by the clergy there. In my time with Ron and Christine, I was so moved by their gentle spirit, a spirit that has shone through in the articles and videos in the news this past week. Let us keep this precious family in special prayer in their time of need.

Rest eternal grant to Harrison, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the departed, through Your mercy, rest in peace. Amen.
