We would like to thank Burton Funeral Home for its generous donation of holiday stockings for our residents. The veterans enjoyed the various treats, puzzle books, socks, and lottery tickets, as well as other various items. Thank you for recognizing our veterans and their service to our country during the holiday season.

“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.”
Dear Kate –
I just wanted to thank you for everything you did to make our family comfortable from our first meeting all the way through the funeral service.
My mother would have been very happy!
While any death is difficult, an unexpected death is especially hard because there are no good-byes.
It was also a comfort to me that I knew you Kate! You are truly remarkable!
Everyone we came in contact went above and beyond the call of duty. Kind, compassionate, understanding, there are not enough adjectives to describe how we were treated.
Thanks to all!

Dear Bill and Staff
Thank you for your guidance in planning the funeral for my mother.
Everything was done with care and respect.
The service in your chapel and the Mass at St. Julia were very comforting to our family.

I wanted to thank you for offering and then sending ornaments in memory of my parents. It was a source of comfort in this first Christmas without them.
Thank you again.

My Family and I want to thank you and your staff, for being so caring. During our time of hurt. It will never be forgotten. We appreciated you coming out on a cold night to deliver my granddaughter’s bead for her necklace. She thanks you too.
