Deepest condolences to those who raised and loved Elder Burton.

Surfers Paradise, AU

The title says he died, but the article doesn't give that status. Am I missing something?

Salt Lake, UT

I am guessing his mom wrote that prior to him passing.

So young and so talented, it's always devastating to hear when missionaries die on their missions. I may come from thousands of miles away (from the Philippines), but as an RM myself, I just felt very sad to hear Elder Burton go. :-(

@Pavalova - I'm not sure when you wrote your comment, but the time stamp of the article is before the time stamp of your approved comment. The death status is in the first paragraph.
This is such a hard thing to see wonderful missionaries either hurt or dying in the line of service. It is a great tribute to all these missionaries that they want to serve with their hearts, might, minds and strengths. Just be safe as safe as possible out there.
