Brother Burton was a man of God. There was never a time if you wanted to ask a question that he didn't take the time to help you. I recieved many books and lessons from him. He is a pastor who will be missed . His heart of gold made him unique and precious to all that knew him. Prayers to the family. I will always remember your smile and love you showed towards everyone you ever met. Rest with your lord my friend and former pastor.

Elaine,

My sincerest condolence to you and your beautiful family. Remembering all the good times we had when we were young, going out to eat, doing things together and your visits to Idaho and Hawaii. Benny has always lived with Heaven in view, yet spreading love and compassion while here on earth, the sweet fragrance of his life will linger on. Our prayers continue for you and your family.
