< Return to Dedication Listing

The 47th Annual Newport St. Patrick’s Day Parade
is fondly dedicated to the memory of:
Charlie Burns

June 7, 1937 – January 11, 2003

I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times and bright sunny days.
I want only happy memories left when life is done.

Sadly missed by family and friends.
“May St. Patrick watch over you and your smiling Irish eyes”
