"I am writing to thank you on behalf of our family for all you did to make J's funeral as perfect as he and we could have wished. It was a pleasure for all of us to work with you, as you so quickly and easily related to each of us and accommodated our individual contributions. We are filled with admiration for your professionalism, your warmth, sympathy and understanding and for your skill in delivering the words which recalled the most memorable qualities and achievements of the son and brother we loved. Many of our friends who attended the service were impressed by your excellent conducting of the service."



"Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all you have done...

S's Farewell was well-received by family, friends and colleagues - in particular, your warm and personal touch was both professional yet welcoming, and was appreciated by many on what was a very difficult day...

On my part, I would like to thank you for guiding me through a very rough part of my life, and giving me such wonderful support... I was so worried I wouldn't be able to honour S in the way I felt he deserved, but I feel your Tribute was more than fitting.

Thank you for being who you are, and doing what you do, and I know you will bring comfort to a great many more people in the future..."




"Just wanted to drop you a message to say Thank you. The service was beautiful and to let you know many people said so, and one went so far as to say it was the best service he had heard. You covered everything we wanted said, and more. I have been told I did my brother proud BUT the truth is, YOU did him and I (and our family and friends) proud. It was a very beautiful eulogy and I am so pleased the funeral director chose you for us. I wish I lived in your area, so I could recommend you to others. I would do that without a second thought."




"I would like to add my thanks for the service today, which gave back the dignity which had been stripped from our father by Alzheimer's. We couldn't have wished for more."




"I thought the Service last week was a very fitting tribute to J and I was proud of how we all said goodbye to her. And I would like to say a heartfelt 'Thank You' to you, Gail, for your part in that process.

I am so glad we found you to help us organise the funeral and we all thought you were excellent on the day. Thank you for understanding so intuitively J's role in all our lives and expressing what she meant to us all with such eloquence and style. We all agreed it felt as if you knew her and that you were part of our family.

And finally, of course, if anyone needed a guiding hand, like we did, at one of the most difficult times of their lives, we would recommend you without hesitation."




"Further to my earlier telephone conversation, our family would like to thank you for your part in making our Mother's funeral a memorable and special occasion. We had over 100 friends and family attend the funeral and nearly every one of them commented on how well you had managed to capture and convey her personality and what a beautiful, well presented service it was with many saying it was in fact the best funeral service they had ever attended."




"We were all delighted with the funeral service - you put it together so well and it was exactly what we wanted. Everyone commented on how beautiful it had been, so that is a tribute to how well you did it. We could not have asked for more. If I can ever give you a reference, please do ask..."




"On behalf of my family I would like to thank you so much for making the service so beautiful. You certainly managed to capture the character of G and we received so many compliments from people saying what a lovely and poignant celebration for a remarkable woman who had such a long and interesting life."
