  1. Dearest Michael, I so often thought of you and your kind spirit and where life would take you . I am so very glad that through the many turbulence’s of life that you landed safely and found your loved one’s . You were my first crush and my first love . A 16 year old meeting this beautiful blond blue eyed boy , so respectful and gentle and kind ,too short of a meeting but wise beyond it’s years … leaving me with the impact of a respect you deemed I deserved. A girl never forgets the impact her first crush, love leaves her drained of emotions, I have never forgotten you . Rest In Peace

  9. What a beautiful Service in the times we are having. I worked with Michael at Chalmers for the last five years, he was a real gentleman- very caring towards other workers and clients and always liked to have a laugh. He had a quiet nature and always, always, spoke of his family with such love I will miss Michael a lot, he always gave you that cheeky smile tipped his hat ‍ and liked to say “to be sure to be sure..” in his wonderful accent. Michael loved his cuppas ☕️ had the biggest cup in the house, always with 3 teabags at once. He was a very proud Irishman Love to all the family, thinking of you all

  15. A beautiful service for a beautiful soul, who at work spoke about his family with love & pride.. my heart goes out to them all, to Prue & their children.. having a child the same age as Sadie gave Michael & I that common ground to talk about at work.. I’d always ask “And how’s the little cleaning lady..?” 😉 He would talk about all the things you did together, going fishing etc your interests over the years; Minecraft, My Kitchen Rules.. He loved you so much, as he did all his children.. to lose a beloved Father so young is so deeply unfair.. but I know he will be watching down on you as you grow, with such pride forever Xx

  16. To All of Michael’s family and loved ones, my heart goes out to you all. I was privileged to have worked with Michael at Chalmers. He spoke with gratitude and a warm love of his family that ran deep. A genuine heart and such a kind charismatic man. I adored his laugh and the light he gave out when sharing conversation with him. He will be fondly remembered. Rest In Peace Michael

    Ps. Throughout the service I continued to remember how safe I felt when Michael smiled at me, and that brings me much joy.

  25. Truly and as awkward to express Michael Burnie’s funeral was the most touching funeral i have felt.
    My respect for the Irish couldn’t get any bigger but it just did as I do for Michael his family and his chosen one’s.

    I do wish I had more times with him but I will and have never forgotten my night with him with Prue a long time ago..

    I will remember the great passionate man he is

    Best wishes to all..

    Steve Mandamadiotis

  27. My Heart goes out to Prue and all the extended family.
    I had the pleasure of sharing a house (2001)with Michael ‘O Michael (As i referred to him).
    He actually helped me through some trying times of a Marital Breakdown as he was experiencing the same. He use to quote the line and song title..’What becomes of the Broken Hearted’.
