Memories & condolences

You never know the impact of a person’s life and their meaningful acts of kindness until you take a moment to reflect. Over the years of seeing St. Eddiesteen at various church services, state meetings, and convocations she has always shown forth kindness towards me.

I remember attending my first Youth Council in my early twenties without my family. She spotted me and came up to greet me and to let me know if I needed anything, she was there. She was a mother figure who would look out for you.

I also remember during my college years, when I was a student at Temple. Once again she was there to make the connection for me and to let me know one of granddaughters was a TA there and I could connect with her. Another time when I felt she was looking out.

I am thankful for her kindness towards me and her being a mother figure in the church to look out for the young women.

To the Burno Family, we’re praying for you.

Sheila Harris Yah has put me and Lady E Burno together. She loved me and my children and supported us in all our endeavors. She always said she was inspired by me raising six children by myself until Yah blessed me with a mate, But she was truly my inspiration. I loved her with all my heart. She will truly be missed. Some pictures I have with her were when she supported my daughter Deborah when she graduated with her Masters Degree in Legal Studies in 2017. The other picture is of her being present for my 50th Surprise Bday Party in 2018. I will miss our talks, our texts, and especially our many times together traveling in the car going to and from services and stores and the times we had services at her house and at the Temple and the different gatherings we were together and so on. It's been hard for me to deal with, and I know what the family is going through. It is a great loss in our lives, but I believe that if we keep her life's living alive that we will make it; you the family will make it. May Yah be with you and give you the strength to hold on and carry on her legacy. I encourage the family to be strong and of good courage. I love you all. Love Sheila and Wayne Harris and family.

I am loss for words at this particular time but your Mother meant the world to so many people. She had a special place in my heart. Several weeks ago, she was on my heart so we decided to swing by Temple Shalom to check on her. Service was over and she was upstairs and we had such an amazing time simply talking. She was one of my greatest supporters and I will miss our long sweet talks and laughs. I know this is not an easy time of life, Lady Burno lived a FULL life and made IMPACT. I am proud to be one of them that she has helped, encouraged, mentored, motivated encouraged and supported along the way. We are extending our deepest condolences.
