“Thank you for putting together such a beautiful service. You captured Mum’s personality and spirit perfectly and you made the whole process so effortless from my perspective.

Wow Janet “you did us proud”
The boys and I cannot thank you enough for your enormous support during the funeral, burial and the run up to them.
It felt like an enormous burden had been lifted off my shoulders once you became involved. We have had so many compliments about the Service and the way it was conducted. So much of that was down to you. Quite a few friends are now considering a humanist Service themselves.
So once again the biggest thank you for your gentle professionalism and kindness
The S Family – Jan 22

Thank you so much for all your help making today a day I know Dad would have loved!

I also wanted you to know how much I loved your final thoughts for us to consider.

Mrs A Jan 22

Everyone who attended told us afterwards how much they liked it and how suited it was to our daughter. Relatives and friends watched it via the weblink and also enjoyed it.

Thank you for your input into the service, it helped to make everything perfect. Several people told me that it was the first humanist ceremony they had been to and were now considering having one for their own funeral!

Thank you also for the way you conducted the service, your excellent and very fitting summary of my mum’s life and the way it all worked out as the perfect send off for her. It was great working with you on this and you did her proud.

Thank you so much for the huge effort you put into making the Thanksgiving Service so successful. It was a very special occasion and one which I will obviously never forget Mrs P Aug 21

Thank you for your email with the copy of the service.
I would just like to personally thank you for your help putting a lovely service together for my mother.
On Friday I had phone calls from both my aunties, and they were so happy with the service and, trust me, they would have said if they didn’t like something. Aug 21

I have been told by so many people that the funeral was the loveliest they have ever been to – I really appreciate the role you played in it. Your wise advice helped us plan what we had never anticipated planning and were completely unprepared for. Your guidance on the music choices was masterful for which I am particularly grateful. Your calm presence on the day was so helpful and knowing the service was in your capable hands was very reassuring. It is a very special thing that you do, and I am very grateful that you do it… Mrs H June 21

Thank you so much for this, and for all that you put into yesterday too. It was such a lovely service, and the thought and care that had gone into it, from everyone, was so clear to see.

The venue couldn’t have been better, and your calm guidance was instrumental in giving Dad the day he so richly deserved. April 21

Thank you so much for making Friday so special for our family. Mum has found lockdown very hard, especially in the last few months with Dad so ill, but you made the whole process of arranging the service stress free and personal. The suggestion of having horse racing music was brilliant. I have printed off the service for mum to keep, she appreciated you sending it.

Thank you for all your advice and support, both with putting last Thursday’s funeral service together and of course with running it so beautifully. Thursday was surprisingly for me, a good day, and hopefully one which will give us strength for those to come.

I have been bombarded with emails telling me what a beautiful, moving service it was and how well it had been conducted. I have also sent a number of copies of your transcript to some who couldn’t be there. For me and my family, it will be a very precious document. Feb 21

I am very aware as to how busy you must be and yet throughout you remained patient, calm and made us feel that the service and our grief was all that mattered. We are all deeply grateful. I was also immensely moved by your additional reading at the end. The whole service felt right and was exactly the kind of tribute we wanted for him. March 21

Thank you for your part in it all, a calm sane voice when everything
else appears to be in a tornado … ! Jan 21

“Thank you so much again for all your valuable input throughout the process of helping my husband come to terms with the difficult period since his mum died. It really helped both of us to travel from a place of anger to acceptance and then to end up with a positive service like we had today has been extremely cathartic! Mrs SC Oct 20

“A huge thank you for delivering a lovely service yesterday at my Father’s funeral. Both my Sister and I are very grateful for the way you put across all the messages and Dads “life history.” Everyone said how nice the service was and I couldn’t agree more.
