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.

Peter and Karen
We were impressed by our professionalism and kindness. Harry Weiner is a friend but he really helped my younger brother who was struggling after the funeral was over. I just wanted to say how pleased we were with Burton Funeral Home. It’s a hard time and it’s nice to know that your loved ones funeral is in capable hands. Thank you.

To the Burton Westlake Funeral Home Family
Thank you for doing that annual service of remembrance. That was beautifully done. The piano playing, the singer, Fr. Mike reading scripture and to end with the names and tree heart was filled with joy that evening...Thank you again for all your service.
