Aunt Doode was one of my favorite Aunts.....she will be surely missed. My favorite memory was the times we spent at Aunt Doode’s house down in Pelly and had tuna fish sandwiches and kool-aid as small kids. She always welcomed anyone. She will be surely missed. Roy & Bebe pray for peace for the family during this difficult time.

Mudge was one of the sweetest people I've ever known. She always treated me like a son, and I will forever be grateful for that. I know you're in a better place now with your children, Callie Sue and Tyson. I know you're happy up there, but you sure left a hole down here. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire burns family members. Love Y'all.
