Condolences For 
"Allen Burkett"

  1. Your family has always been my family as well ever since I’ve known Marcia from our junior high school days. My prayers and thoughts are with you as you gather together in support and love to remember your beloved. I’ll always remember how Mr. Burkett made me feel welcomed in your home. I remember all the Sundays I rode to church with your family as Mr. Burkett drove us. At those times, I felt like I was part of your family. He was a big part of my younger years. I wish I could be with you at this time. As you grieve, I grieve. I love you all!
