To all who have written. Your thoughts and prayers are sincerely appreciated. Our family hopes to thank everyone personally, however,
we are certain there may be thoes we miss.

Prissy was a very unique individual. Her kindness touched many. As I told many, her's and Lester love affiar was one that many will never experience. They shared a life of joy and at times hardship, but by being there for each other, they always worked through it.
When Crystal was born, a new chapter in thier lives began. Now we see Prissy in Kenna her grandchild whom has brought much joy into thier lives.
Prissy alway put herself second. You never heard her complain. She spoke her mind when she felt it necessary. But, not taken into consideration what others had to say.
In regards to Lester's family, I know Pris was special to each in many in different ways. She thought so very much of each of you. She expressed this many times and the importance of making sure all kept close.
Prissy earned her wings. She was an angel and left us to quickly.
She will truly be missed but in all of our hearts for the person that she was, not just as a sister, but an aunt whom did so much for her nieces and nephews, a wonderful mother, and loving wife.
I will miss her morning phone calls and her voice. But I will know her pressence is with me each and every day, with each and every memory.
Again, I and my family thank each and everyone. Pris was blessed
to have known so many.

No love like you shared could ever be gone. My heart goes out to you all-- I know she touched many lives with her kindness. May the knowledge that others are thinking of you and holding you in their hearts comfort you.

Pris, no one will replace you, only your famliy will miss you more. A friend without peer, a path lighter, a heart bigger than the sun. I and all those who were blessed to know you will miss you always.
May 19, 2008
I've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason, bringing something we must learn. And we are led to those who help us most to grow, if we let them, and we help them in return. Well, I don't know if I believe that's true, but I know I'm who I am today because I knew you:
Like a comet pulled from orbit as it passes a sun; like a stream that meets a boulder halfway through the wood. Who can say if we've been changed for the better? But because we knew you we have been changed for good. Who knew that Glenda the Good Witch was talking about YOU?
To our friend Pris, who made everyone feel like her best friend.

From the guys @ SCRS....George, Bob, and Big Daddy.
May 19, 2008
My heart goes out to Crystal and her family. Your loss is my loss. I'll never forget her smile and sense of humor:) She's in a better place watching over her loved ones. God bless and know that you all are in my prayers. Love to all.

The Burnette family has been a fixture at Independence for more than three decades. Amazingly helpful and always supportive. Even when the kids grew up they continued to attend events and stay in touch. A special seat should be reserved at Patriot stadium for the Burnette's to keep the memory of the support alive. My condolences to Mary, Crystal, and all the rest. Pris will never be forgotten.

We at Independence have lost a true Patriot. Lester and Crystal,please know that you are in our prayers.

Pris and I worked together for many years on the State of South Carolina account. She was energetic, kind, and helpful - she truly wanted to help others. She was our "den mother". Thirteen years ago I became ill at one of the meetings and she took me to a doctor. I am so sorry I am unable to return the favor. She leaves a large void, and will be truly missed by all who knew her.

I had the privilege of knowing Priscilla when I worked at The Hartford. And unfortunately I never did meet her as our office is in CT. But just from talking to her over the phone and through e-mail we formed a friendship and she was someone I knew I could trust and confide in. She will truly be missed and I am thankful for just knowing her. She was a truly dedicated and caring person who went out of her way to help others. My prayers go out to her family and hope they can find peace in this time of grief.

May 19, 2008
Pris was truly a wonderful and loving aunt - always thinking of others before herself. I just regret that we didn't spend as much time together in my older years as we did in my youth but I do thank God for blessing me with an Aunt like her - you will truly be missed but never forgotten - you have a special place in all our hearts. My love and prayers are with you Lester & Crystal.
