  5. Dave Burns was a very special man. Our family & the Burns family moved next door to each other in Mission Viejo in 1995. Dave and Debbie had transferring down to an art but I was still new at it, but Dave and Debbie took our family into theirs. We couldn’t have made it without their friendship. Dave had a knack for making everyone feel at home. He was a Loving Husband and Father. There is a saying that a person shouldn’t be measured by the things they have, but by the things they give. This is Dave. He was my friend. Rest in Peace.
