Dear Karen,
Thank you for the beautiful snowflake ornament with my husband’s name on it that you sent to me. It is another example of how Burton’s is top notch in caring for the families of deceased individuals.
Bill at your West Lake Branch was extraordinary in meeting the needs and wants of my family. Everything was done to perfection and though it was the most devastating time in my life, I was very happy with the way everything was done.
My husband chose Burton Westlake when we were there for calling hours for a friend. As far as I am concerned, Jim made an excellent choice that day. Thanks for everything!

To everyone at Burton’s:
We would like to thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts. Firstly, for the care of our son. Secondly for the kindness, compassion and patience of the personnel throughout the entire funeral. Thank you also for the Memorial Service.

Karen,
Over the past year, you have been a tremendous help to me as I tried to move the through two very sudden and grief filled situations and deaths. My sister’s funeral went very well. She is home and laid to rest next to our parents. It was a very small, quiet service that let us bury her in a manner that let us grieve and honor her. Your help in coordinating two out of town funerals was immensely appreciated. I could not have done it without your expert help.
Your quiet understanding and very capable nature made these difficult situations more bearable.
Enjoy the summer!
Thank you for the beautiful card and words on the anniversary of Dad’s passing.

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.

Dear Karen,
I want to personally thank you all for your help with my mothers funeral.

Thanks to your diligent effort, the white bird release at the cemetery was very touching.


I also cannot begin to tell you how many people commented on what a nice newspaper writeup you did for moms obituary. I, along with my family appreciate your and everyone's endeavor to help us get through this difficult period.
