Thank you for the beautiful snowflake ornament with my husband’s name on it that you sent to me. It is another example of how Burton’s is top notch in caring for the families of deceased individuals.
Bill at your West Lake Branch was extraordinary in meeting the needs and wants of my family. Everything was done to perfection and though it was the most devastating time in my life, I was very happy with the way everything was done.
My husband chose Burton Westlake when we were there for calling hours for a friend. As far as I am concerned, Jim made an excellent choice that day. Thanks for everything!

I would like to thank Burton Funeral Home for the great job performed in the funeral of my blessed brother. Shamiah did a wonderful job and went above the call of duty.
She was very professional yet so caring towards our family and her duties.
She is truly an asset to Burton Funeral Home.

Dear Mark –
I want to thank you especially and also Patty and Terry. You were my rock during the most devastating time of my life. Every day I miss mom and dad so much. I still think it is Dad calling when the phone rings.
Took a beautiful wreath to the cemetery and saw the headstone for the first time. I cried. Now they are together forever. Again thank you so much.
