Roses to Mission Carthage Volunteers!
      • They say you have never really lived until you have done something for someone that you know can never repay you. The Hawthorn Funeral Home and the Shamburger Family salute the many altruistic volunteers of Mission Carthage. We wish space allowed us to name each and every one of you. God bless you!"

  • Carlton, Thank you for the memorial of a living tree for Wayne. What a nice thing to do as a funeral director. Wayne and I planted trees on our farm our whole marriage. He loved planting things so this is so appropriate. Know how much "we" appreciate the tree and your friendship. The service was beautiful.

  • To the Hawthorn Funeral Home Family: Thank you for the huge and delicious meat tray you sent to feed our family. We, all 38 of us, enjoyed it. The grand kids said it was "kid food" because it wasn't a casserole. They were especially grateful! Your care for us during the funeral of our sweet Margie was such an act of love. All of you go beyond being just a staff of a business. You are our friends. No need was left unmet; no request left unanswered. From coffee to the last hug to comfort - you were there, watching and praying. Somehow, thank you seems very little to say. We will always remember.
