    We have wonderful memories of time shared with Burnice & Linda. Burnice served as our best man when we married 40 years ago & we always considered him a best “friend” as well as Linda. He lived his life as a wonderful example to others of how to be a Christian. Burnice was an humble & loving person & we regret that we were out of state at the time of his passing & did not know that his health had deteriated. We loved him & want to let Linda & family know that our thoughts & prayers are with you.
