The way you delivered the service, it was as if you knew [us] very well indeed. So many of our family and friends, came up to me and complimented you on just how brilliant you were at delivering the service with such tenderness and feeling in your voice, especially the eulogy. You should be very proud.

You were indeed our silver lining or port in a storm and once again for this I say a very heart felt thank you.

It was beautiful; at the service, at first I thought you were a friend of the family as your words were delivered with such love, care and warmth. I know [the family] has received great support from you and you helped them through a very difficult day by making it so lovely and memorable.

A massive thank you for the service you performed for my belovéd’s final farewell. You delivered it with such warmth, sincerity and professionalism. I could not have chosen anybody better.

At such a difficult time you walked into our lives and smoothed the ripples, helped bring together a truly unique and beautiful service with the utmost sensitivity and support. You have the most incredible ability to give sympathy, support and empowerment without being overly mushy or sentimental which is truly a rare and individual quality.

I just want to add that I found you delivered the service with such warmth and compassion as I cried the whole way through it was if you knew him personally. Thank you.

The family have asked me to write on behalf of everyone to thank you for so competently conducting the recent funeral service for my Dad … We were so pleased with the service and felt it reflected everything we wanted to say about Dad whilst acknowledging the important people in his life. We received so many positive comments about the personal nature of the service and indeed someone felt it was the ‘best’ funeral they had attended.

“You spoke so clearly and concisely and could be heard by all who attended. After the service so many people came up to us and said what a lovely service it was; my brother in law even thought you knew my father personally. You delivered it perfectly. It’s hard to put into words what Dad meant to us all but I feel you achieved this. The funeral was exactly how we wanted it to be: a celebration of the life of a wonderful man.

“I would like to thank you for my Dad’s service yesterday; I have been to a few funerals over the years and that was the most beautiful service I have ever been to – everything went so well and felt so natural.

“…your friendly but professional approach…”
