Mrs Jimmie Burns is an angel from Heaven loaned to us to guide us, to listen to us, to share and make music with us and love us unconditionally. She understood our hearts and our deepest hurts. She was a wonderful counselor when we had overwhelming problems and her loved helped us through to every hurt and lesson we had to learn. She was a wonderful encourager. She always had a welcoming smile and greeting and made me feel like her own. I love her since I got to know her as she moved to Conroe when I was in the 4th grade. She was the neighbor across the street on Silverdale drive who made the best paper doll evening dresses ever seen. She enjoyed drawing them as we shared with her in imagining the beautiful flowing garments. I remember sitting in the bathroom watching her apply her makeup as she got ready for church. She reminded me later that I asked her a million questions about everything. I enjoyed her tasty waterery oatmeal. On a Sunday morning the Stamps Quartet could be heard from the Burns photograph stereo system. She taught us many songs and we sang with her countless hours as a girls trio with Susie, Nennie and her organ and piano accompaniment. Surely Goodness and Mercy will follow me all the days of my life...... There must be recordings as we sang for the congregation with Brother Jim Carroll as pastor. Harold Burns would join in as all the neighborhood kids played in their yard. He would chase us around and swing us around and around to our joy day after day. The neighbor kids grew up and the Burns family moved into their new home in Holly Hills and Dlorah came along. It was a necessary stop to go by the house on my way to see my Dad, Dan Tate. Mrs Burns was there for me when my mother, Gladys Faye Tate died at age 44. Jimmie talked to Gladys about the daughters and life as mothers. Susie and I traded houses and moms from time to time. It was fun to be with Jimmie and imagine her as mom. It was Susie and Dlorah who had the luck of the draw to have Jimmie to see when they woke up in the morning for school and to help them with homework at night. There are many memories that swirl around in my mind and pictures in the album books for all of us. I loved her when I was a child. I loved her through my years as a teenager, and more and more did I love her as I grew into an adult and married and had children of my own. Jimmie was my dear friend and confidant. I love her still and always. My darling "MRS BURNS" there will never be anyone on this earth more special to me than you are.
