To Marion, I feel your pain but remember earth has no sorrow that heaven can not heal. Deacon Burns will truly be missed. He was such a spirit filled Preacher/Deacon. He was always smiling had such a wonderful glowing spirit. I know you all are hurting and missing him but God's got him. All of his trials, pains tribulations etc., are over now. Rest in Peace Deacon Burns. Jeanette Henderson
