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!
Melissa Hart was very helpful.

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.

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.

I am tremendously grateful to you for how beautiful my loved ones funeral turned out. I have heard how you are in a fog at this time and now I know exactly what that means.
However, I feel fully confident in you all at Burton Funeral Home and the professionalism that you showed. I received so many compliments from various people.
I also wanted to accommodate you on your staff. The girls in your office could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Whoever picks your employees could not choose finer people.

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.
