    It was my pleasure to spend time and talk to her. She was a sweet lady and I know she’s singing in the angel choir!

    Mrs. Burns called us often at Main Library and it was always a pleasure to talk to her and just chat for a bit. She never took any information at face value. Always called us and fact checked all information. She seemed like a wonderful lady from our conversations. May she rest in eternal peace.

      You all were my mom’s google! Always courteous and helpful. Thank you so much for your time with her.
