I would like to extend my sincere condolences to the family. I was totally heart broken to hear of the passing of such a caring and loving person. Mrs.Burns had a way of brightening any place she entered with her bubbly and feisty personality. I will truly miss her beautiful smile and our frequent conversations. She always put a smile on my face. This world has lost a beautiful person, but Heaven and God have gained a marvelous Angel....for the Almighty only takes the best!!
