Subject: Memorial Service for Pat Burke - Thursday, July 22, 4 p.m.,
Friends and colleagues,
After speaking with Pat Burke's family members, we've determined a
memorial service will be held Thursday, July 22 at 4:00 p.m. in Memorial
Church. I hope many of you will be able to attend. If you are aware of
others who would want to know, I'd appreciate your help in forwarding
this message. Pat had many dear friends and colleagues across the
I will send out further information next week, and I'd welcome hearing
from any of you who would like to be involved in planning for it --
there will be a meeting Monday at 2 p.m. in the Round Room at Memorial
Church for this purpose.
Thanks to all of you who have already reached out to one another to
share our sorrow -- Pat was a remarkable human being who clearly
treasured Stanford and his colleagues here.
