  1. Sending thoughts and prayers to Bill and family. I always enjoyed my visits with Burnell at shows and banquets. I did not have to worry about my mare when I had her in for breeding, in fact I know she was spoiled! What a special person who will be greatly missed! RIP Burnell

  2. Our sympathy to Bill and his family. We always enjoyed our visits with Burnell and Bill at the NMA banquets. Sure hope Bill continues to come to those!

  3. We got the very dear pleasure of taking care of Burnell. She had so much spunk. She lived her family and that pretty Lady. She will be missed dearly. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

  4. Bernell was such a bright spot from my childhood. We spent many a weekend at a horse show together. She sat with her notebook keeping records and encouraging everyone. I will not forget her smile and the laughter she brought to so many. Silver Star and Elk River Saddle Club were our “home” clubs and from there we branched out to enjoy so many more. Over the years I’ve moved on to show only in the pleasure world, but continue to embrace my roots and the families that became part of my own. Bernell will be missed by many. My heart goes out to Bill and family as you grieve the loss of this beautiful lady.
