I have great memories of Mr. Burne back when I started to work for Mount Royal Commemorative Services, he was still directing funeral services for M. A. Blythe Bernier, he was always so friendly and professional, a great example for us. My sincere condolences to his family.

My memories of Bill were when I worked at Blythe Bernier back in 1993. I was new to the funeral industry and Bill would give me advise with patience and always with a smile. He truly was a gentleman who will be missed. Rest in Peace Bill.
Our sincere condolences to his family

We will always remember the Birthday brunches and the get togethers at Jo-Ann and Bill’s house, and the amazing stories he would share about his war time experiences. He was a wonderful man and will be missed. Our deepest condolences to the entire family and to Bill an Jo for this great loss.
