In Memory of Elder Mckay Choy Burrows

My prayers go out to friends and family of Mckay Burrows (and the family of his companion Elder Davis). I hope that they will find peace and comfort in their great loss. I was in shock when I found out earlier; I couldn't believe it. Mckay was a good friend. I only knew him for a year, but we had many good memories in that short period of time. He was very funny, talented, and he was a good listener. He always tried to seem like the "tough guy," but really he was a softie and was always there if i needed to talk. I'm sure he was an exellent missionary out in Bucharest, Romania. We will miss you, Mckay.
Shortly after saying goodbye to Mckay in person,
he sent me a goodbye text before leaving on his mission.
I still have it saved in my phone:
Mckakes: "Ha oh man. I'm gonna miss you chica. One of the few cool girls i know."
BYU vs Utah Basketball 2009.
We had a tent saving our spot in line for the game.
We set it up Wednesday and took shifts staying in it until the actual game
which was on Saturday.
Yes, we had front row seats.

Mckay definitely had the best costume of all time.
I was a dark tinkerbell.

  1. I heard, and it makes me so sad. Im so sorry. I miss you.

  2. This makes me cry.... I'm excited for when we get to see him again.

  3. Could you please let me know if McKay's grandfather is George Burrows DVM? We know George and his wife Connie from trips to Grenada West Indies. Saw the article about McKay in our Alabama hometown newspaper and want to know if McKay ws their grandson. My email is Thanks for any info.

  4. He was a great kid.. Its hard to know he's actually gone. I saw the flag at half staff today for him, and broke into tears.
