I offer my heartfelt condolences for the loss of your beloved, Burdella. Please know that Jehovah God and his son Jesus Christ are aware of your pain and they care for you(2 Corinthians 1:3,4). I pray that you are able to find comfort in God's promise of paradise where there will be no more pain and sorrow (Revelation 21:3,4) and the many wonderful memories of your loved one becoming a reality in the future resurrection (Acts 24:15). Please accept my sincere condolences and for more comfort, I invite you to visit the website, jw.org.

My sincere condolences to the family at this time of loss. Even Jesus wept at the loss of a loved one. I have found comfort in the scriptural promises at Rev 21:3, 4 and I pray you will as well.

I'll never forget when all of us kids would put on a show on yours Mama's front porch for her. Oh how she laughed. And when I called in to the local radio station and said " I love Burdella Whitley". Don't think she ever forget that. That was my second home as a kid. Wanda and I will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers. You will always have her memories to guide you along the way. And with those she will always be with you. Gid Bless you all.......Love Frank
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Mama, I wish I could tell you how much I love you. I know I am going to miss you so much. For four years we spent so much time together, going to the store, yard sales and just talking on the phone. I don’t know how I am going to get over the loneliness. They say time heals the pain – I don’t think there will be enough time to heal the pain and emptiness that is in my heart right now.

Your home has been home to me my whole life. I thought about it the other day – you were already gone, and I realized that after a while, I will have no reason to go “home” anymore. Daddy has been gone for a long time, and now you will not be there.

I haven’t let myself cry yet. I’m afraid that when I do I won’t stop. You probably didn’t realize just how much you mean to me or how much I love you. I always wanted your approval. I wanted to do things the way you did – I just didn’t have the same talents you had. I envied the fact that you could crochet and sew the way you did. Nobody could throw together a better meal like you did for eleven or more people when we were all home. I didn’t try to do some things because I was afraid that I would not live up to how my Mama could do it. There are so many things that I still wanted to learn from you. We talked about your family history, and I am so angry with myself because I did not record those conversations. Now, I need to try to remember and I want to write them down so that I never forget how hard your life was and how you worked and overcame so much.

I know it is too late for me to say it to you now, I just hope that when I said, “I love you, Mama.” before you got so weak that you knew it was me, and that I meant it from the bottom of my heart.

My dear precious mother:
I wonder what I'm going to do now when I need a recipe, a household hint or just want to hear your voice. I hope you know how much I loved you. I tried to be there for you, especially in the end. I know the doors sprung open wide when you reached those pearly gates of heaven greeted by so many family members that had gone before you. I hope you are up there doing all the things you loved to do - fishing, crocheting, cooking and sewing. You will always be a part of me and forever in my heart.
