In Loving Memory of our Dear

Sierra Lorraine Kelly

She will be treasured in our hearts Forever

Sierra entered into eternal rest on September 3, 2019 at 4:35 p.m. in Ryan's Hospice in Mesa, AZ.

Her Mother: Katie Burnett, Kelly, Buie - 14 years old and disabled , Sierra Lorraine Kelly was born on the 4th day of April in Delta Colorado.  She was the Angel of her mother, Katie Burnett with Gary & Linda Burnett as her grandparents.  Sierra and her mother lived with the Burnett's off and on for most of her life and even though she could not talk after the disaster that she went through at 13 months of age, everyone that ever was affiliated and knew Sierra could feel her spirit even though she could not talk after the massive damage to her brain.  Linda has received many witnesses that Sierra came to this earth as an assignment in the pre-existence before she was born, to be faith promoting to her mother and the Burnett Family.  The miracle stories about how her spirit affected those around her are many. 


Sierra would look at you with her beautiful eyes and it was almost that she was looking at your soul and trying to communicate with the inner portion of your heart so that you would better understand her wants and needs. 

For the last 8 months of her life she has resided with some loving foster parents in Mesa, AZ and they truly fell in love with this special angel girl.  Alicia Mumford was able to understand and read Sierra's body postures and read her sign language of what she was trying to tell others.  Alicia indeed learned how to speak to the very soul of Sierra and became a love in her life.  It is with deep gratitude that the Burnett Family wishes to thank Alicia, the wonderful care given to Sierra and staying with her to the very end of her last breath and allowing Linda Burnett to talk to her at Ryan's Hospice, just minutes before her passing.  This little girl was indeed an inspiration to many and especially the Burnett family, with her very loving composure each time you came in her presence. 

Sierra was indeed a wonderful child, that totally changed the life of all the family members. Sierra’s grandmother Linda had a major inspiration about this experience.  Sierra came to this life knowing full well the consequences, but she chose to come to earth, to indeed be an inspiration to all and inspired them to become better.  This was the fulfillment of her earthly quest and it was indeed fulfilled.  It brought love and sacrifice in many unknown ways in this life. 

Lovingly written by her Grandfather, Gary Burnett
