My friends and I play gospel music at Hickory Creek once a month, and Burnice has been such a blessing to us every time we were there. Such a sweet, faithful woman. We will miss her very much. Prayers for her family.

Burnice was a special lady kind and a joy to be around. She will be sadly missed. We had many enjoyable visits at her home and in the nursing home.
