Sadly, our mother passed away after a short but intense battle with brain cancer. My family was devastated, and in that state of devastation had to plan her memorial and funeral. That’s where Burns Garfield, and Tim Burns, came in. At every level, and with every detail, they were truly excellent. Tim encouraged us to think of the Life Celebration as the beginning of the healing process, and it was. He helped in so many practical ways. But even more importantly, he helped to create a truly personal and beautiful space for friends and family to remember Mom. We provided photos and information about Mom’s likes and loves. Tim used all that to create stunning visual backdrops, slideshows, a puzzle with a photo of our mother to engage the youngsters in our family, a calendar of her life and more. I’m not sure where I will be when my time comes, but I’d consider having my body shipped back to Syracuse just so I could have my Life Celebration at Burns Garfield! That’s how good they are. I give Burns Garfield my highest recommendation.
