Memories Timeline


  1. Larry and family,

    I was so sorry to hear about Mrs. Burleson. I liked your Mom very much. She was always nice to me as Roger and I grew up. I know it must be very hard for you after just having lost Roger and your Dad.

    May God be with you at this difficult time. We will continue to pray for you. I’m sorry I couldn’t come to the visitation or funeral. Take care. May God bless you.

  2. I was at Mom’s (Gelene Burleson Smith)yesterday and just heard about Helen. I’m certainly sorry and I know this is extremely hard for you all.
    Helen was always so nice to all the Smith kids as we were growing up. I’m sure we got on her nerves being there was so many of us but she treated us very special.
    May God send you strength in the days to follow.
