John McBurnie Obituary, Death – John McBurnie, who had been battling cancer for a very extended period of time, lost his fight with the disease on May 24. He died away while he was at home, in the comfort of his own house. He had been struggling against the illness for a very considerable amount of time. I had the privilege of being by his side right up to the moment that he passed from this world, which is something for which I will be eternally thankful.
I will never forget that moment. Nothing I could ever write or put on the internet could do justice to conveying how magnetically seductive and amazing he was. He was simply incredible. Both of those things are completely out of the question. Rarely can a woman say that throughout her whole life, she has been able to have frank and open conversations with her father about any and all issues that have arisen in her life, and this is something that few women are able to say.
This is a unique opportunity, and only a select few people are able to take advantage of it. My stepfather is many things to me, including my dance partner, my best friend, and someone whose opinion I hold in the highest regard. He is also someone who I hold in the highest esteem.
It is only fitting that a life that was lived to such an astounding degree be remembered in such a wonderful fashion; it is not at all out of place that this should be the case. On Saturday, June 10, at eleven o’clock in the morning, the memorial service for the cremation of Dad’s ashes will take place at the Sedgemoor Crematorium. The crematorium is located in Sedgemoor.
