Mrs. Burnett was such a lovely lady. She was my music teacher at St. Bethlehem Elementary when I was a child in the 70s. I loved her so much. I remember her walking in the classroom with her electric piano and the students belting out in song, "Hello Mrs. Burnett!" We all loved her. I think of her even today as I teach my grandchildren the songs she taught me. What a blessing she was. I saw Mrs. Burnett as an adult several years back and told her how I loved her and the music she taught and how she brought so much joy. I am glad I told her. What a special lady!!
Rest in peace! I know you are singing and laughing and praising God with the angels. Thank you Mrs. Burnett for sharing your love of music and your kindness.
My thoughts and prayers are with her sweet family.
