I was hoping as time passed, I would find the right words to give you an appropriate thank you, but the only thing time has done is reinforce that it is okay that I cannot find an adequate way to verbalize my gratitude. Thank you so much for everything you and your staff have done to aide us at this time.

Thank you for the lovely card and note remembering our brother’s death. It was so thoughtful of you.
It is hard to believe that a whole year has passed. I think of him so often and keep him close that way. Our thanks again too for the very professional and kind and caring way that Burton’s took care of everything for us after my brother’s death.

“To: Peter, There are many words I could use to express my appreciation! I want to thank you! Words can’t express how grateful I am for what you have done for my mom!
To have her look her best for the Lord, and letting me see her and to honor her. You made this happen. Your staff is a gift from God.
I never wanted this day to come so fast. When I came to Erie with my mom I had hopes and dreams for a better life. But she became ill. I had to put her in a nursing home. I never want to be without her love.
My mom, I wanted to honor her the way a daughter should. God knew this was the place for her. Many people need to know about this place. A tear comes down my face, I am blessed to know you and your staff.”
All member at Burton’s on West 10th Street were very humble. I couldn’t thank them enough. Highly recommend.
