Condolences to the Burdick family. I am sad to hear of Bessie's passing. I worked with Bessie for many years in the Middle School. She was such a kind, loving and caring lady with a great sense of humor. Heaven has gained a true angel. RIP. Bessie.

I was sorry to hear of Bessie's passing. I have known your family for many years as I went to the Oxford school with the older ones. I had visited your family at the farm as Florence was my good friend and we were in the same class.
My condolences go out to all the family. Cora (Pnney) Swartout

I met Bessie later in her life, what a nice lady, who missed her Bob greatly. She carried life weights she had acquired during her life’s walk, seldom feeling an equal to others. In my observations, the “why” weighs on me, for Bessie was an equal to most anyone. I know I will miss her wit as I venture into my older years.
Go in Peace Bessie, you are now released from the bounds of this earth, free to meet many of those you have been separated from for many years.
Please know we will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers in this troubling time with your passing.
Love in and thru our Savior Jesus.
Bob and Sandy Smith

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Burdick family, I will always remember when I would show up at the house with Steve and she would look at us and ask what are you boys up to now.
