Dear Sis. Jean and family,

We were so sorry to hear to hear about Bro. Burrell. Please know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We pray that God will give you the strength to get through this and send you His comfort, love, and peace.

If there is anything that we can do please don't hesitate to let us know. Bro. Burrell is in Heaven with Jesus and is completely healed and is worshiping with our Lord and Savior. He has already gained his mansion and crown that he stayed so faithful to God and he gained what he had believed in for so long.

We love each and everyone of you.

With deepest sympathy,

Brian, Paige, Justin, and Phillip Hubbard
