Everybody said so, everybody was impressed (and my family are very critical people). I’m so glad that we chose a humanist funeral. It was a perfect goodbye to mother … I loved the way you summed up my mother’s lfe and made it oh so casual and natural and yet you did it with dignity. So thank you Julie. I’m so pleased we found you.” – C & V

You’re doing a great job. keep it up.” D, C & J

“I would like to express a sincere ‘thank you’ for your beautiful memorial to Dad, and the time you spent with us preparing it. I found the two hours conversation we shared on Tuesday evening to have been very uplifting, and it made me even more appreciative of my remarkable father. It also emphasised that the family and laughter were key to him, and I feel sure he would have approved of the way we smiled and chuckled when we recounted various tales.  It was both remarkable and moving that you managed to pull together our anecdotes and facts into the memorial that you delivered on the day. It really captured his personality and values and was a fitting tribute.” – P
