"Eunice was my Sunday School teacher. I remember her and the Burman family back in Hansell. Our little church is gone only the bell remains. Many good memories of our little town. Rex Van Wert"

"I loved Aunt Eunice. Things I think of when thinking of her are some kind of baked good always on the table, sewing beautiful clothes and her sizing down the girls? prom dresses so I could use them to play in, her beautiful voice, going to the farm, working with the Red Cross, helping at the State Fair and her and Uncle Verald always hosting family reunions. To me, going to their farm was like kids going to Adventureland now. So much to do and explore! The huge swing that hung from the tree, the tree house where you always wound up getting sap on your clothes, building tunnels through the bales of hay. I loved her so much and although I knew this day would come, I am sad. "
