Wonderful Grandma B

Jeff's sweet Grandma Mary Lynn Burningham passed away on Valentines Day!  Rulon came and picked her up for a late night date!She was such a wonderful Lady.  Everyone she came in contact with she made them feel special and like they were apart of her family.  She had such an amazing positive attitude about life. She was always full of energy and always supported her children, grandchildren and great- grandchildren.  We will miss her helping hands, smiling face and fun spirit at Lake Powell.  We will miss her yummy dinners, "ringing of the Bell" at sporting events,  family activities and holidays.  Caden will miss his "reading lessons"as he would call them.  Jocelyn will miss her help and support with violin. Ellie will miss her coming to her school performances.  We will all miss her Bear hugs-especially James. Eliza is so glad she got to meet and snuggle with this wonderful lady before she returned to her Heavenly Father.
Jeff was supper close and had a special relationship with his grandparents.  After Jeff and I got engaged one of the first places we went is to Mary Lynn's and Rulon's home to tell them the news!   She was such a great example to all of us. I hope I can be a little more like her when I grow up!  You will forever be in our hearts!  We love you Grandma B/ Grandma-ma, and will miss you tons.

 the Best Kindergarten teacher ever

 Her funeral was amazing and so touching!  Her music chooses  were perfect too- they fit her perfectly. The great grandkids sang a new song called "Gethsemane"  and did such a good job.  I am sure she was very proud!
