The Burcham family truly loved your mom, dad and all your family. Good friends forever. Your mom was such a Godly influence on all of us and a best friend to my mother. We have all of you in our prayers.

I remember Aunt Betty always having a smile on her face and a gentleness about her. Every summer she would have Lori, John and myself spend two weeks with her during Vacation Bible School. It was a wonderful time of fun, adventure and lots of good memories. Those summers with VBS helped shape my life. She will be missed.

My sincere condolences to you, Peggy, Mike, and Pat. May the Lord comfort you in His mercies in Christ.
You know that your mom was one of my Sunday school teachers at Homer Congregational Church when I was a young boy. A very kind, sweet, and gracious lady. She pointed all of us to Christ and His saving grace. I have now been in gospel ministry for more than 35 years. Many hundreds have heard the gospel because your mom was faithful to share it with a young squirmy kid 60 years ago, That's some pretty good fruit, I would say! Men forget. God does not forget. "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones."
