Comments:My Dear Sister~

I absolutely love the tribute you have done for the boys.
I love coming to it every day, it gives me a window to your world. Since I don't live near enough to visit you as often as I would like, this is my way of checking in on you.

I also cried when I read all the new entries but I also laugh and smile. They were good kids. Yes! They drove us a little nuts at times, (all boys do), that's why we love them so much.

No one will every forget Andrew & Jarrett!!

Love~Diane Marie

Comments:Hi dear friend,
I was one of many who visited your website yesterday ~ and cried again for the loss of Andrew and Jarrett as I re-read accounts of the accident. The drawing of the Knight kneeling by the crosses says it all... we're still weeping two years later for your beloved boys, and will for the rest of our lives. God bless you, Donna and Bob. I know Jarrett and Andrew are watching over you from their Heavenly Home.

Comments:Mrs. Burkholder,
Hi, my name is Teri Yackley. I was one of Andrew's friends from Batavia. Actually, he often referred to us as the "Batavia Girls." And I was searching for him today and I came upon your website. I love it and it looks great. I just want to let you know how much we miss him everyday and I pray for your children and your family all the time. I don't know if you remember, but me and my friends Holly and Michele came to see you the summer of 2003 to see how you were doing. I hope you are all doing well. It's ironoic too, because me and Michele picked up Andrew and Doug about two weeks before the accident, and we hadn't seen him for about a month before that. But I will always remember him how he looked then and how he looked all the other times.

We often look back on all the great and wonderful memories we have of Andrew. We are going to come see you again soon, and you bet we will be there March 3rd and March 5th. And the whole "Brawl" that went on, it does bring back memories of Andrew and Jarrett's accident. But for some reason, God called them up that week and we will never know why. I think it's all about trusting Him. But anyways, I miss him all the time and the whole world will never be the same without them.

Sincerely,
Teri Yackley, Michele, Holly, Kim, Danielle, and all the rest of the "Batavia Girls. :)"

Hi, my name is Teri Yackley. As I was searching for things about Andrew on the web, your site came up. And I must say I love it and it looks great. Anyway, me and my girlfriends Andrew oftenly called "the batavia girls." We came to see you last summer to see how you were doing, and I was in the process of writing you a letter when I decided to write on this instead. I just want to let you know I pray everyday and I will continue to pray for your family, as well as both of your children. May God bless you and Andrew and Jarrett forever. I miss Andrew so much, all the time. And this Burlington fight brings back some memories of him. And it's weird, because we picked up Andrew and Doug from a party with about two weeks before his accident and I will always remember him that way. I will write more soon I just wanted to let you know how I feel.

Sincerely,
Teri Yackley, Michele, Holly, Danielle, Kim, and all the rest of the "batavia girls."

I was just checking out the site to see what new pictures you had up, and I saw the one from the Mother's Tea...As crazy as it sounds I'm not a hundred percent sure, but I think I'm one of the girls in it...Seeing Jarrett in it brought back memories from the time our families went to Medival Times a long time ago (hope you still have a copy of the picture!) I cherish those memories so much,

I love looking at the new pictures of the boys or even the gravestone. I don't think I ever viewed that Letter to the boys you wrote, I cryed like the whole way through it. I miss them a lot Mrs. B!!! Are you doing the andrew-jarrett scholarship again, because I don't see it at the high school yet. Well I email me anytime, okay Mrs. B. I hope Mr. B is doing good.

We whish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today, while thinking of the many things we didn't get to say. We know how much you love us, as mush as we loved you, and each time you think of us we know you'll miss us too. But when tomorrow starts without us please try to understand, that an angel came and called us names and took us by hand. And said our place was ready in heaven far above and that we have to leave all those we dearly love.
We love you Mom and Dad.

My flakey Heritage professor finally handed back the narrative i worte about Andrew and Jarrett today~ got an A. All the stories from our class were published in a little book and a couple people came up to me today and told me how they'd read my story and it literally made them cry. It made me cry too but, after all this time, i think it helped in dealing with things. I think about you guys all the time and hope everything is going well. I love the pic of the boys today, Donna. I have one that's almost exactly the same of me and my sister!

It still looks so good, and I hope Mr B. and you are doing good!! The thing I'll always remember is that Andrew died on my birthday, but that'll always be a day of rememberance, and Jarrett died two days before my birthday. It's something i'll always remember probably for the rest of my life. I miss them a lot Mrs. B!! I'm getting ready for college for 2005 fall year, and i'm really, really excited getting ready to apply for scholarships and getting all the stuff out to colleges, and i'm really excited well if you ever need someone to talk to i'm here. luv ya!

I do still come to your site. I don't do it alot, but that's because I don't really spend a lot of time on the computer. As for forgetting about your boys, that's not going to happen. I think about you and them often. My thoughts alway go to them as I drive down Kelinger Rd. I enjoy seeing the pictures you put on the site. And every once in a while I happen across pictures of my boys with yours. As far as my boys are concerned, you know they won't forget. Take care ! Love Ya! Mary

I left two roses, but they just seemed so inadequate compared with what you have done with their flowers and decorations. You are doing such a wonderful job with stone and this site, it really gives everyone comfort and strength, thank you so very much! We all still miss them, and it seems every other day someone is wearing the shirts and keeping their memory fresh. Thanks again, and God bless.

Comments:An old poem I never showed anyone, it's been on
my webpage/screen name...I figured I should do something
with it. Right? Here it goes...

UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN
It's scarey to think how fast life goes
the little we think about and the little we know
what was it about that day that you were chosen to go?
how were we suppsed to react if we didn't even know?
It was hard looking at you, not moving at all
I tried to stay so strong; I tried to stand tall
Tears rolled down my cheek one after the other
crying about the thought of never seeing eachother
I said my good bye and blew a soft kiss
wiping my make up off by using my wrist
tears fell like the rain, the atmosphere full of pain
so close to losing it by repeating his name
I looked all around me and stood in constant shock
the students stood like birds, gathered in a flock
I walked out in scilence still processing what took place
and remembering how hard it was to look Donna in the face
what do you say to someone who's in that much pain?
should it hurt to talk and speak of his name?
it hurt so bad not knowing what to say
it hurt so bad even thinking about that day
but still to this day I sometimes question, why?
why did they have to go? why did they die?
there are some answers that we will never know
but until we meet again I just have to let you go

Written by Elizabeth Konen
I love you forever and always
we will always remember "The Burks"
Donna & Bob~ you are in my thoughts and prayers

Comments:Hey Donna! Last night, my mom told me about the site you've made for Jarrett and Andrew. Strangely, the first question that came out of my mouth was, "Do they still have Hobbes?" I remember how much Jarrett absolutely loved Hobbes. This site is such a wonderful idea! I had so many good memories just from looking at all the pictures. I particularly remember the "Loch Ness Monster Movie" Jarrett made in 6th grade for the Challenge Reading class. It had the whole family in it with Scottish accents, and a model of "Nessie" swimming in a pond. It was absolutely hilarious!
Anyway, I just wanted to say that I admire you for all your faith and courage, and thanks so much for sharing this great site with all of us. It's a great way to remember Andrew and Jarrett. I think about you guys sooo much.
Much Love,
Elyse

Comments:Hey, Donna!
Someone just told me about this site this past weekend. This is so great! Not only do you share pictures and memories of your boys, you get to talk about stuff, and hear from people. Like everyone else has said, I think about you guys all the time, too. I hope and pray that you're getting whatever it is that you need to get through each day. (I suspect that the planting/caring for the gorgeous greenery around the boys' stone helps!) You guys are such wonderful, optomistic people who deserve to find some peace and joy again someday. Tim has that picture of the boys' baseball team up that you gave him------Hey: if you ever feel like getting back into coaching, let Phil know........Take care, Love Gail

Comments:Andrew and Jarrett are two hilarious kids who always brought a smile to my face and showed me a thing or two about what they know to broaden on my knowledge, like Jarrett with chess which he taught me how to play and Andrew with golf just practicing with him was always fun and I will miss them with all my heart always and forever.

I marvel at your strength but weep for the immense loss you have suffered. I hope you will know that many people think about you and pray for you to have peace and happiness in your life.

Comments:Dear Donna,
I never had the pleasure of knowing your sons, but they seem like they had a lot of joy in their lives. I can't imagine the heartache of losing one child, let alone both of them, but you have done a wonderful job of keeping their memories fresh for family and friends. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Comments:Your boys must have been very special to have such devoted friends and truly loving parents.

I lost my daughter in 1995, and all these years later, I have gotten by her death, but I will never get past her life. I feel blessed that she was with me, even if it was just for 16 years. I like to think that that is all God could spare her for.

When you spoke of all the things that "people" had told you, I remember standing in that spot. It was of little comfort at the time. Slowly through the years, and through dear friends, I moved forward, unwillingly at times, but eventually I began to live again and not simply function. Her memory began to bring a smile to my face, not tears to my eyes. I knew in my heart that this is what she wanted.

I truly feel that our angels are with us every moment of every day. Their friends keep them alive as we do. They may have left this earth, but they left their mark, not just on you, but on all their friends. These friends will keep their memories alive, just as you and your husband will.

God Bless,

Pat Volk

I do not know you or your sons, but after reading and seeing your wonderful site, I do feel that I have gotten to know you and them in a very special way. From your many pictures I can see how high spirited and full of life they were. And how very much they were loved by you and so many other family members and friends. Continue to update your site for all those who need help to have their spirits lifted. You are an inspiration and a light for others. God bless you.

Comments:Dear Mom, We're writing in here because you feel sad that people rarely write in your new guestbook. We love the fact that you have a place for our friends and family to go to see pictures and read the stories about us. You've finally figured out how to operate the computer, Mom (Jarrett said that). Remember that we're always with you. As you've said before, we're in God School now, and you'd be very proud of us. Some day, we'll meet up again, and all your sadness will be gone. Love you, Mom. Your saintly boys, Andrew and Jarrett

Comments:Hi Donna,
First chance I had to check out the new guest book and it is really nice. Loved all the new pix, adorable one on the first page, Andrew and Jarrett look like they glued their faces together! Found the fishing picutres will make sure I show Patrick when he gets home. I need to take a picture of this great tree Patrick and I found a few blocks away with purple flowers. Don't have any idea what it is guess I should ask your parents since Florida flowers and trees are still so new to me. Or is it I am too old to learn!
Must go now talk to you later, bye love, Irene

Comments:Hi Everyone, I wanted to get this set up correctly before I wrote anything. I finally have the bugs worked out! This is the guestbook that Linda Kelley has on Jenny's website. It's way better than the one I had because you can write as much as you want. Thanks to everyone for writing such wonderful notes, it always makes me smile to hear from you all (that's southern talk). Later, djb
