Name: Adam Burns
Message: Uncle Delton, Kim and Beverly, I was so sad to hear about Aunt Gail. It has been forever since I have seen you guys and every time I was in Warren I thought about coming by. I can't believe she is gone. I guess I just never thought about Uncle Delton or Aunt Gail ever being gone, but just kinda always being there. I remember every holiday she would make cookies with me and let me frost them. I have so many fond memories of coming to your houses over the years and hanging out. I remember crying on Aunt Gail's shoulder when they cut down the gumball tree down in our back yard to get ready for the new pool. She assured me that it would be worth it, and it was. You guys are always in my thoughts. I know that she has joined my Daddy in heaven. We will see them both again one day. I love you guys, Adam
