I worked with Pepsi for many years at Morton Salt. He and Lenoard Carney taught me how to run the forming press in the Carton Dept. He will be missed.

Arlene & Family: Sorry to hear about "Pepsi". I always loved living next door to you folks, as you remember I used to spend hours with you!! Remember when he was cooking the hot dogs on the grill and our dog Sandy snatched them while he went in for a plate? I remember he laughed but he didn't yell when he could have - that is the way he was, always kind, happy and smiling. You were wonderful neighbors and friends and he will be missed. My love and prayers are with all of you. Keep all those memories close to your hearts, he will be there for you always.
Love, Jeannie

Arlene, we are in Florida so we won't be able to personally tell you how very sorry we are at the passing of Burnie. We always enjoyed our chats when helping at the apartment. Take care of yourself and please know you will be in our thoughts.
