Mrs. Ursula you did a fantastic job raising Shaniqua. We use to be neighbors on Pollman Ct. an me an Niqua was best friends. We would be together at each other’s houses everyday. I remember when you an my mom would take turns taking us to school in the morning an we would walk home after school. I’m really going to miss her cause she was such a true friend. You were such a good mom but you didn’t play an that’s what made Shaniqua the great person an mother she was. I’m not able to make it to Columbus for the funeral but Christian will be their on my behalf but I promise the next time I’m in Columbus I will make sure I see you cause I want to give you my condolences myself. You an your family are in my prayers!

A Loving Mother

Shared by Barbara Dawson on January 19, 2018

Ms. Burks loved her children and wanted them to learn.  She was not the average today's MOM.  She was small framed on the outside, but her insides were filled with old school traditions.  The first time we spoke over the phone I shared a couple of concerns. She did not hesitate, she said send all of his homework.  The next day, her son had completed all of his homework and redid the other.  I did not know he could write so well.  The previous year teacher said "I told you she was a great Mom!"  She always made time for her children.  I can still see her carrying the Kindergarten in for breakfast.  Her arms wrapped around her daughter sharing her love through embrace.  I can also remember her coming in to have lunch with son and sending him all of those extra snacks making sure he would not be hungry.  She left with her children a beautiful memory of love that only a mother could give.   I am sure she is wearing a crown in glory.  

My Sincere Condolences,

Barbara Dawson
