Obituary of Mildred Louise Burns
Mildred Louise Burns, age 92, of San Bernardino, California passed away on Monday, March 13, 2023. Mildred was born in MO. to love life, to love it even when you have no stomach for it and everything you’ve held dear crumbles like burnt paper in your hands, your throat filled with the silt of it. When grief sits with you, its tropical heat thickening the air, heavy as water more fit for gills than lungs; when grief weights you like your own flesh only more of it, an obesity of grief, you think, How can a body withstand this? Then you hold life like a face between your palms, a plain face, no charming smile, no violet eyes, and you say, yes, I will take you I will love you, again. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Burns family.
