(Akron, Ohio) Todd Burton and Terence Burton, two-thirds of the contemporary gospel group Half Mile Home, mourn the passing of their mother, Sheila M. Burton, from complications resulting from breast cancer on Monday, August 3rd.

They report:

“The Burton Family is deeply saddened with the untimely passing of our beloved matriarch, Sheila Burton. Nothing in the world quite like a mother’s love, and we are grateful for all that she meant to us and the valuable life principles she instilled in us. We are convinced if ever we needed the Lord, we need Him now more than ever.

“While facing the next days and hours will be difficult, we are determined to look to the Lord for strength and direction. We extend prayers to everyone affected by this pandemic and experiencing loss of loved ones and ask the God of all comfort to send healing across the land.”
