  2. I am so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God’s sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible.

  6. I so remember growing up with Linda and Connie as best friends. We were always together, sleepovers, being dropped off at dances, working at the bait shop and so much more…. I was always there at the house. Mr. and Mrs. Burger were like second parents to me. I will always cherish those wonderful memories of her.
    My deepest sympathy to all of her family.

  7. May the peace of God which transcends our understanding keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Our heartfelt sympathy and prayers are with you at this time of profound loss.
