Here's a link to obit for Sue Bird's stepdad

For those interested, here is a link to the obituary for Dennis Burden, the stepfather of former UConn guard Sue Bird who died at the age of 68 on Saturday.

Burden, a regular at Bird's games when she was at UConn, was the retired director of athletics at the Great Neck North school district.

Calling hours are on Thursday from 2-5 and 7-9 p.m. at the Thomas F. Dalton Funeral Home in Levittown, N.Y. (2786 Hempstead Turnpike is the address). The Catholic mass is Friday 11:00 AM at St Bernard's R C Church (3100 Hempstead Turnpike, Levittown).

Bird left the U.S. Olympic team to return home to New York to be with her family during these trying times and is expected to meet up with the U.S. team on Saturday when they are in Istanbul, Turkey for a pair of international friendly and a couple of practices before heading to London  for the final preparations leading into the Olympics.
