It is with such a sad heart I type the following information. At the time of his passing I knew very little, other than the senator's reputation, but in conversations with listeners and others that knew Senator Burns, I feel in some way I've come to connect with him.

Funeral Service for Senator
Friday, May 6 - 11 a.m. - The Metra Park Arena.
The public is welcome to attend.  Reception to follow.

The family is requesting those who wish to make a donation in his honor should make them to Shriners Hospitals for Children, your local food bank, or the Kate Burns Memorial Scholarship c/o Atonement Lutheran Church at 1290 Sierra Granda, Billings, MT 59105. Cards, memorials, and other remembrances may be sent to the family c/o Congressman Ryan Zinke's Billings office at 222 N 32nd St, Suite 900, Billings, MT 59101.

I'm fairly sure Conrad would completely disagree with this song selection, yet somehow it reaches beyond and cuts to the core.

Mr. Burns, I hope to leave a legacy as deep and rich as you have. My thoughts and prayers are with those you left behind.
