Terrible, Terrible death.

Terrible, Terrible death. What kind of people are walking around with us everyday? How EVIL must one be to take someone's life this way? This lady was a daughter, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, a aunt. No matter what details of her life that may come out during this investigation. Her family is DEVASTATED. She was LOVED. She will be MISSED. To the Burns family. I prayed for last night. I prayed for you today and I will pray for you tomorrow. Phillipians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Please stay strong. Do not let this terrible act question your faith. A godless person did this to your loved one. God is with you now and he will get you through this. I know it will not be easy. But through continued prayer, it will be easier to bear. With Sincerity and Love, S.E.S


I just found this today and I have to say this is a horrific crime. I was trying to find the scripture to quote and this is exactly what I was looking for. I agree with you all the way. I have been on my knees praying for this family and everyone it touchs. I will continue daily for always. I even will call all my relatives all over and ask for prayer. THE DAY AND HOUR UNKNOWN MATTHEW 24: 42 NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT THAT DAY OR HOUR, NOT EVEN THE ANGELS IN HEAVEN. MURDER MATTHEW 5: 21 YOU HAVE HEARD THAT IT WAS SAID TO THE PEOPLE LONG AGO, "DO NOT MURDER! AND ANYONE WHO MURDERS WILL BE SUBJECT TO JUDGMENT." I hope and pray that all the families will turn to GOD and he will carry you all the way. When I have pain over losing my niece to murder 2006. I run and grab the BIBLE and this helps me to survive another second of my life. If we have just one more second to live it is a blessing to me. If you need me I am here for you all. I love you and GOD loves you more! I have followed all the news of WWAY News Channel 3 since 2006 and this helps me also. I see that I am not the only one in pain and then this shows me all the other families suffering worse than I do. I have made a list of families I pray for constantly. Try to remember the good times and the smiles you have of your loved one. This is my memorial for my niece this year and I give it to you today. Not a day goes by that I do not think of you. Time passes quickly; yet seems so long. Fond thoughts of you bring instant smiles. Love for you still grows; and memories never fade. You are today and forever in my heart and life. PHILLIPIANS 4: 13 I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHICH STRENGTHENED ME. Fayetteville, Tennessee


I pray for the family of this Lady. If it is ruled foul play, please put every effort you have LEO into finding the scum that did this to her. I doubt she did it to herself, so foul play has to be the next thing on the list. Crime is going crazy in most all coastal communities the last few years. can't imagine why....DUH. We, as neighbors have to band together and watch out for each other. Oh it won't stop it all, but it can't hurt. Another sad lesson for us and a worse commentary on our local crime stats.
