Vergia and Family, My heart goes out to you all. I lost my Mama in August and it was and still is the hardest thing in my life on me. With Gods grace and love may you and your family find peace in your heart. I am very sorry for your loss.

There are no words to describe how heavy our hearts are for this wonderful family. We can be at peace knowing she is with our Lord and Savior in her permanent home. As I viewed her tonight, she was absolutely beautiful with the peace and love shining on her face. ( The peace of Jesus) It doesn't get any better than that. Love and hugs

My memories of Miss Bessie are filled with love and laughter. There was just nobody like her. She looked at everyone with kindness and acceptance. As many times as I'm sure we disappointed her, she never held it against you. A TRUE CHRISTIAN LADY, and one I'll never forget. The world would be a much better place to live if everyone were like Miss Bessie Burkett! I will miss her.
