To the friends and family of Mrs. Burns,
We are truly sad for your loss. Our prayers and thoughts are frequent for those who suffer due to the anguish of losing a loved one. We all experience this loss but the Bible teaches that God shares your loss and your pain at Psalm 116:15.
The scriptures brought us comfort when we've lost loved ones and I hope it helps at this most difficult time. Because those who pass on are precious in Gods eyes, He's provided the scriptures to give comfort but also show us his plan for those who have entered rest. For comfort from the Bible please visit

It was a privilege and honor to know and love Aunt Mary. She was a gentle, kind and elegant woman who always made me feel welcome in her home. I will miss her but I know she is at peace in heaven.
May God bless the family,
Grace Bentley Goble

I would need a book to write all the fond memories I have of Mama. I’m one of the luckiest grandsons in the world. I always loved talking to Mama and visiting with her. Her Apple Pies were out of this world. She always went to the amusement parks with us even though I don’t ever remember her getting on any other rides other than the Ferris wheel. She was the kindest person to everyone. She taught me a lot about love and faith and I know she is in Heaven now with our lord and savior. Mama will be missed! Love Kevin Burns
