    Grandma was witty, feisty, strong willed, loving, thoughtful, passionate, and determined. We loved having conversations and spending time around the dinningroom or kitchen table often laughing. Many family members say I have many of her qualities and I will carry that with me always.

    Sympathy to the Burns family in the passing of Carol. Knew Carol well when I attended Riverview Bible Church and always loved talking with her as she was such a very nice person. A great reunion will take place in heaven for believers....all those tears will be wiped away. After the period of sorrow, remember all the happy time spent with your Carol...that's what she'd want. sue junkins smile
