Dearest Sheila: You were always so kind and welcoming to your late husband's, DeCoursey Alonzo Burnett, family. My mother, Thelma Smith-your sister-in-law, Roger, Nicole and I are grieving for you. We are glad that you came into the family. We would never forget that wonderful time we all when you were in NY and stayed at our house. We would never forget your riotous laughter, your reaching out when Mama, your mother-in-law died. You were always there in our hour of need. Now, may God have mercy on your soul as you go home to be with Him. Rest in peace! We will always love you!!
Thelma Smith, Roger Rudder, Anne Rudder and Nikki Smith.

Our sincere condolences to all of Sheila’s family. A wonderful mother, gran, sister and friend, Sheila will be missed by many. We were blessed the day we met her so many years ago. Heaven is where Sheila resides now but we know she will be looking down and caring for all of us from a higher level. Farewell Sheila; you were much loved.

"Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints" (Psalm 116:15). It was a blessing getting to know Mrs. Burnett through the many years. We were privileged to see her last September and will cherish that memory.

Condolences to the entire family. You are in our prayers.

Ivor, Maxine, Michael and Michele
