I couldn't have asked for a more dedicated, caring person to assist in our time of sorrow. I need to thank you for everything, honestly without you and your kind heart I'm not sure that it would have been possible, so THANK YOU!

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.

I would like to thank Burton Funeral Home for the great job performed in the funeral of my blessed brother. Shamiah did a wonderful job and went above the call of duty.
She was very professional yet so caring towards our family and her duties.
She is truly an asset to Burton Funeral Home.
