    Dear Family of Lillie Burton, I want to express my sincere sympathy for the loss of your loved one. You can be sure that comfort and hope are found in the pages of the Bible. In the Bible book of John 5: 21.we are told " For just as the Father raises the dead up and makes them alive, so the Son also makes alive whomever he wants to" this is such a wonderful hope for us and to remind us that we can see our loved ones and friends again. Take care of yourselves and keep those precious memories of your loved one close. Sincerely Mrs Sandi Watkins
