Saturday night Kirstin and Orion Burton were struck by a drunk driver which took the life of this beautiful loving mother. Her son Orion was rushed to a childrens hospital with a cracked skull as well as a broken arm. He was taken into surgery but is expected to be okay.  Her husband Andrew Burton is still with Orion through his recovery. Any support and prayers through this difficult time are highly appreciated. She was an amazing mother who never hesitated to put the needs of her family before herself. Kirstin was also such a caring passionate person and touched the hearts of so many. There has been a hashtag created on instagram (#missukirstinburton) that is overflowing with love and kind words to the type of person she was. We are all truly heartbroken.  Thank you all for everything you are doing, she will always be in our hearts.

Any kind words can be directed towards the email loveforkirstinandorion@gmail.com I will be forwarding the account to her husband.

My name is Tori and I am Andrew's Sister in law, I am doing this page from Florida as a way to help my family up in Ohio in their time of need since I cannot be there. 
All of the donations will go towards supporting Andrew through Orions recovery as well as covering costs for Kirstin. When the time is right I will be handing the account and email over to Andrew. Thank you again for all of your love and support for the Burton family.

Words can not express how very thankful we are to each and every one of you. The outpouring of love and generosity is overwhelming.

Because of you, Kirstin's funeral services were beautiful! She touched the lives of so many people. She was truly an AMAZING woman. She will be missed by all who knew her. Even those who knew her for only a short period of time.

Andrew and Orion are now home with us. We've got a long road of healing, emotionally and physically, ahead of us. With the grace and mercy and love and strength of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we will overcome.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support. Please continue to share Kirstin with others. She still continues to make a difference in the lives of others!

Going Home!!!

In a world full of darkness you always chose to see the light. You will never be forgotten and we will never fully recover from the loss of such a beautiful soul. We will all live with you in our hearts every day. Orion's strength through this difficult time has shown how amazing of a mother you were. The Doctor has said that if he continues to improve that Orion may be transferred out of the ICU into a normal room in the next day or two. The support for this family means so much and monetary value will never heal the pain from losing Kirstin so soon but its a start for the long road ahead. Thank you for continuing to help us reach our goals, and still pouring love and support into the recovery of Orion, Andrew and the rest of Kirstin's family.

We understand that not everyone can donate but we ask that you please share this page. We are trying to utilize every connection possible to get the Burtons the help they need.

Arrangements for Kirstin's funeral are being made and when we have the details we will update everyone.

Love you Kirstin always.

I'm so sorry for your loss. She is now in heaven watching over her son. I wanted to encourage and kindly suggest, to turn Orion's car seat rear facing. It is dramatically safer up to age 3-4 that way. Blessings!!

So many hugs and prayers being sent your way and I know this has been said before on here but please consider rear facing precious Orion for another year or two. I'm so saddened he lost his mommy but so happy he's doing well and has his daddy and family to love and support him.

I am a friend of Jordan Given's, and I saw her video with her poem. I may not know you, but I will help anyone who's a friend of Jordan's in a heart beat. I wish you well. I know this isn't much, but I know every penny counts in a time like this.
