Condolence: Dear Burgess Family,

I never had the pleasure to meet James Sr., but I have had the incredible honor of working with his son Peter for several years now.

I am sure that this period in your lives is full of sadness, but you should know that Peter brings a GREAT spirit and incredible JOY to our organization and his father's spirit lives on !!

Peter's ENTIRE family at Allstate Sprinkler Corporation wish you and your family nothing but peace and comfort and we are all truly sorry for your loss.

Condolence From: Richard Bello
Condolence: May God hold him in the palm of his hand. It's not a small thing that the father who prayed for his family on earth now prays for them in heaven. Billy Graham said, "The moment we take our last breath on earth, we take our first in heaven." Jim's children's love for each other is a testament to him as a father.

Never forget how he helped me when I needed help and I'm sure he wouldn't want that even mentioned so I won't elaborate. I will always remember.
