    I can't fully express how comfortable they made us all fell during this time of sadness. We were never rushed or made to feel we were taking too much time to make decisions. It was as if they were there for us and only us. This was our first time dealing with arranging a funeral. They help make it a positive tribute to our mother and a celebration of her life. We can't be more appreciative.

    Cedric Burnam & Son Mortuary, Kelly and Judy, We are overjoyed to know our Mother, Lemyrt James, is in Heaven and free from the cares of this world. We are equally overjoyed by the professionalism and genuine care you showed towards my Dad and all my siblings as we prepared for Mom's homegoing. We were so pleased with the viewing. Moma looked like she was sleeping. You did such a fine job with everything and we all appreciate your expertise and supreme professionalism. Again, we thank you for handling our Mom with the utmost care and every act of kindness (i.e. woven throw) shown to us on behalf of our dear Mom. Kindest Regards, James-Oliver Families, Renee 2014

    Burnam and Son Mortuary provided excellent services for my father. They were kind, caring, compassionate and understanding. They have been very helpful with any questions that we've had in the days/weeks following my father's services. Burnam and Son Mortuary is the best!

    I wanted to follow up and let you know how wonderful Kelly, Cedric and your entire staff have been to our family. We lost our mother in January of this year, and yesterday our mothers monument was set at her resting place. From the time we lost our mother, the planning of her arrangement, the most beautiful graveside service, the life insurance, the monument selection, and to present day...you have supported us every step of the way. The extra little things, emails, phone calls, and when you sent pictures of my mothers monument to me once completed at her grave site...I can't tell you the tears of joys I felt opening that email. You knew I was 2 hours away, and would appreciate that. I didn't even have to ask. Simply an amazing group of wonderful people. Will never forget you guys. When we see each other again...how about we talk about the weather :) Much love and respect...Pam Greathouse

    Cedric and staff, I just sent the email below to our family. We also wanted to let you know how all of us felt about your care of Rodney. We sincerely appreciated your wonderfully courteous manner, attention to detail, and love you exhibited throughout this event. Lastly, we are abundantly thankful for the larger than life blanket photo of Rod, Dana and me. Dad has commented to us many times on how his children are looking at him throughout the days and nights when he is in his home. I couldn't think of any better way to memorialize Rodney in the way that we choose to remember him. If there is anything the Martin family can do for you, don't hesitate to ask one of us. May God continue to bless you and your business. Howitt C. Martin and family

    Words can not express how warm and compassionate you and your staff was, in helping my family go through every step of a most difficult journey. Our mother picked you, Cedric, because she trusted you, and now I know why. Everything you said that could and would be done, was...and more. My family and I feel blessed by you, and feel we also gained a friend. Thank you!

A special thanks from our hearts goes to the "Reflection Unit" and the axillary staff at Rosewood Health Care for the extra time and care given to "Aunt Blanche".

    From the moment you came on site, I felt nothing but professionalism and a sense of calmness that it would all be okay. I know this is your business, but it is "awesome" that you and your family bring a unique personalism of compassion and concern in "what you do." In the midst of death, your company/family has given us new found friendships, family support and respect for what you do. You have truly helped to ease the sting of death for my family. Thank you for all your assistance, thoughts, prayers, shoulders to cry on, hand holding, lots of conversations and most of all for loving our loved one as we did...still do. May God continue to Bless you and your families!

    We are most grateful for the superb funeral services you provided for Mama. Besides being light years beyond normal in your professionalism, to our delight, you added many other "nice touches". Not a person who viewed her remains failed to spontaneously comment on how pretty she looked. And, so many talked about what a nice funeral she had. Mama would have been pleased indeed. We continue to receive a stream of very positive comments each day-even from those not present, so the word has spread. May God bless you to keep doing the wonderful job you are.

    They made my family fell very at ease during our hours of grief. Kelly Burnam helped with all my paperwork, and put my mind at ease. I couldn't have done it without her. She did it very professional, and very eager to do it.

    Burnam & Son gave me excellent service in the professional and caring way they performed their duties. they kept in touch with me before, during and after the funeral as it was in two different states. I reported a charge by the other funeral home that wasn't fulfilled. Burnam took charge and obtained the money for me.

    Dear Burnam & Son, We want to thank you for all you have done for us. You all were so kind and thoughtful during our time of grief and sorrow.

We truly and deeply appreciate it now and eternally.

    I so much appreciate the staff and the professionalism of how my family was treated. Also, the kindness and the respect that was given by Mr. Cedric Burnam. I would definitely pre-arrange my funeral if I lived there but, I don't. So thank you so much.
