    Burma was a sweet lady. She and I attended a prayer group together at Standing Springs Baptist Church several years ago. She shared the manuscript of her book with me while she was still working on it. She always had a smile and was so pleasant. I know her family has good memories of her as a mother and a sister. My prayers are with you.

    To the Family,

    Please accept our sincere condolence. Burma was a beautiful neighbor and we enjoyed talking with her each time we saw her outside with Paco. May God provide you all with comfort during this grievous time. We all look forward to the time when we will be able to see our loved ones again, Revelation 21:3,4.

  • Burma was a lovely person. She always made time to visit with me when I walked my dog Patrick. Her little dog Paco and my Patrick liked to “socialize”. I will miss her and pray for her soul!
