Solomon Burke always said,
“Give me my flowers while I’m livin’!” 
Therefore, in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to:

The Burke-Maynard Foundation (Solomon Burke Scholarship Award) and/or Solomon’s Temples of the World House of God for All People – a 501 c3 Non- Profit (donations will be for the maintenance of his church and legacy) P.O. Box 2044, Beverly Hills CA. 90213.

We thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. 

May Solomon’s message of love and peace continue to live within us for everlasting eternity.  All is Well!

Kind Regards,
