Support for the Burton Family
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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!

Just donated and shared. I know this happened 2 yrs ago. But it came up in my time hop and I thought.... why should i reach out? Grief lasts for an eternity.... why should we stop caring? Stop loving? I was following your wife on Instagram. I wasnt close with her. But she impacted me. She was a light. A positive soul. She was a wonderful person - I believe that and I never met her. So I can't even imagine her personality in real life. She must have been SO easily loved and cherished.
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.
Please let the father know his kid is much safer rear facing until at LEAST 2yo...
This poor family!! Have dad and little one met yet with a car seat technician? I encourage you to so that he can be made even safer!
