Dear Beverly, Jody, Tony and family,
Though I just recently met “Grandma”, I knew immediately, from her smile, that there was a beautiful spirit inside. I am so grateful that God allowed me to meet her, for that beauty radiated both inside and out. THANK YOU SO MUCH for allowing me to share her last days with all of you and to feel as though we have always been family. You will remain in my prayers and, hopefully, in my life! Rev. 21:4
In His Love,
Donna Burk
