Mark –
I don’t know if I properly thanked you for everything you did for us. Last year was so much of a fog. But I wanted you to know how much we appreciated all that you did.

To the Staff of Burton Funeral Homes and Crematory,
I am so thankful for your kindness and care for my companion and friend. He was not just an ordinary pet he was an extraordinary, local, gentle sweet service dog who helped me with balance and support for almost six years. Thank you for helping us have him close by.
